Leica eye candy.... (1 Viewer)

These look great! I wonder what the view is like through them. May I ask how these Pergers compare to other Leica binoculars? What is your opinion?

Viele Grüße
Guten Tag nach Deutschland @jafritten,

You asked for the view through them. In short, I am smitten. The Northland is still covered in snow, the sun and water make for one sparkling viewing experience. I am not much of a @chill6x6 or @Dipperdapper et al. type analyst :D, whose reviews we all enjoy. My thoughts on the new Geovid Pro 8x32 are more of a simplistic nature, as in "I like 'em. A lot."

Weight and size wise, they certainly will not trump the 8x32 UVHD+, but are lightweights compared to the Geovid Pro 10x42, as illustrated below:

Hello @quincy88, yes indeed, they are a very recent purchase, and made it safely to Alaska; just in time for our feathered friends to return.
Congrats. Those are an awesome compliment to your already very nice Leica collection.

Your very cool dog :love:
Haha. Yes, that's Fiona. She is the best dog that I have ever known. I'm very lucky to have her as my companion.
Yes, the sandhills, trumpeters, and migratory waterfowl in general. I love this time of year.
I AGREE...this IS the best time of the year! Ours are warblers and vireos mostly. Tanagers and grosbeaks too. And let's not forget the orioles.

We get the Sandhills...and a lot of them...by the thousands in the winter along with 5 to 20 whooping cranes. And an OCCASIONAL swan of some type.
Greetings all...

Thought I'd post some pictures of the Leica's I currently own. That's all of them except for a 8X42 Noctivid I failed to locate this am. I went birding too and didn't want to spend too much time looking for it.

First couple of pictures is anything Trinovid. Next couple is anything Ultravid/Noctivid. Next couple is the complete lot.

As far as usage goes...a few rarely get used although they all could be ones primary/only birding binocular. I use mostly the 7X42 UVHD+ and Retrovid 7X35 by a good amount. Next would be the 8X42 Silverline(I just like it) and then the Noctivids.

Feel free to add to this post with pictures of your own!






Beautifull collection. I feel handicapped with only two Leica binoculars. But apparently I picked the right ones, a 7x42 UVHD+ and a Trinovid HD 8X32.
Where are we here?
The volcanic rocks in the wall look like those around Zion NP in Utah. The evaporation ring around the shore suggests a reservoir, but it's odd that so little of it is showing because they're running low lately out there.
