Leica Ultravid 8x20 dissection (The beauty) (22 Viewers)

Nice pictures πŸ‘
Is there space inside the cordura case to store the binoculars with the IPD setting? The double hinge is strong enough to keep up with IPD?

No, the OEM CORDURA case is not large enough to store the UV with the IPD setting. However, yes the UV 8x20 hinges are stiff enough to go in and out of a pocket or larger case and retain the IPD distance. In this respect the UV 8x20 is a bit easier and quicker to deploy for either pocket carry or with a slightly larger case than the also excellent SW Curio 7x21 because it doesn't have quite as much hinge tension.

Thank you! The model is also very important. This Ultravid has great photo potential, because it is gorgeous!
Regarding the questions, I am on the same frequency as Mike answers. To put it in cordura case, I have to reset IPD. But it is not a problem because the hinges tension are stable, being accessed without loose stiffness, even after many intensive use.. The IPD adjustment is done easily, without effort! Ultravid has the same moving mechanical parts as the first day,
