Leica Sweeps Coveted Editor's Choice Awards in Outdoor Life Annual Binoculars Review
In the October 2016 issue, Outdoor Life magazine editors have recognized the superior performance and value of the full-sized Leica Trinovid HD 10x42 and mid-sized Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8x32 binoculars by bestowing each with its coveted "Editor's Choice" award -- a Leica sweep for the binocular categories reviewed.
In acknowledging the Outdoor Life recognition, Leica's Brian Bell, North American director of sport optics, commented, "This is a tremendous achievement for Leica and a testament to our relentless pursuit of optical perfection, value and an exceptional user experience. It's a gratifying pat on the back today, but tomorrow we'll be back to that pursuit."
Leica Trinovid HD 42 binoculars were introduced in early 2016 as an entry-level, premium-performance binocular that afforded exceptional optical performance and traditional Leica quality at a less-than $1,000 price point. Outdoor Life editors defined the Trinovid HD as "...a mid-priced optic that maintains the high quality of the company but is accessible to most American hunters." They also recognized the Trinovid HD 10x42 binocular as "...the clear choice for the best full-size bino in this year's field." Leica Trinovid HD binoculars are available in 8x42 and 10x42 models.
Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 8x32 mid-sized binoculars entered the market in 2016, boasting an all-new prism design and new HD/HT glass lenses that made them Leica's brightest mid-size binoculars ever. With crystal clear image rendering and the other performance features and quality for which Leica is revered, Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars are a perfect companion, particularly for early dawn, late dusk and other challenging glassing conditions. In conferring the Editor's Choice recognition, Outdoor Life editors credited the Ultravid HD-Plus 8x32 binoculars with exceptionally high praise. "This is perhaps the finest mid-sized binocular we've ever tested." In addition to 8x32, Ultravid HD-Plus binoculars are also available in 10x32, 7, 8, and 10x42, and 8, 10, and 12x50 models.
