Product Details

Leica Black Ultravid 8x 32mm HD Binocular - ULTRAVIDHD832BK

Superior brightness, clarity, robustness, ergonomics and low weight

Anyone looking for the best in binoculars simply cannot ignore the Leica HD series. These premium binoculars are clear proof of what modern technology can achieve: fluoride lenses guarantee superb colour fidelity and perfect contrast, a uniquely bright and clear view and pin-sharp detail resolution. And this performance is further enhanced by efficient spurious-light suppression. The focusing action of Ultravid HD binoculars is perfectly smooth at all times. Fine focusing is always fast, precise and sure. The central hinge axis is machined from high-tensile titanium, while the body is manufactured from an ultra-lightweight magnesium alloy. Thanks to their rugged design and construction, Leica Ultravids make light work of almost all challenges encountered in outdoor use.

Extremely compact size is not the only impressive feature of the Ultravid 32 model. They also offer outstanding optical performance and easy focusing. These binoculars are ideal for daylight use.


  • Leica AquaDura coating
    The dirt and water repellent properties of AquaDura® coating guarantee a bright and crystal-clear view in any weather. Raindrops simply roll off exposed lens surfaces and fingerprints and dirt can be swiftly and easily wiped away. In addition, it protects the precious optical systems even more effectively against damage by scratching or abrasion.
  • HDC (High Durability Coating) - abrasion-resistant multi-coating
    HDC is an abrasion-resistant and transmission-enhancing coating applied in wafer-thin layers. HDC®guarantees superior light transmission and extreme resistance to abrasion. You enjoy a bright and crystal-clear image and additional protection of your equipment in outdoor use.
  • HLS: High-Lux-System
    The Leica HLS® High-Lux System combines a number of different measures for the suppression of stray light with specially developed reflective coatings on the prisms. This enables the improvement of light transmission and colour fidelity. The result when viewing: a particularly bright, colour-neutral and reflection-free image with outstanding clarity, contrast and sharpness.
  • Fluoride glasses
    Fluoride glasses increase image contrast and resolution. The predominant ingredient in the formulation of FL glasses is calcium fluoride. FL glasses have significantly lower dispersion characteristics than conventional glasses and are much more effective in the correction of aberrations such as colour fringing. The effect of this is a much more natural and impressive viewing experience.
  • Excellent resolution
    Leica has developed a special simulator that visualises sources of stray light in the design phase to ensure that stray and false light is eliminated before production begins. Thanks to optimised baffles, stray-light traps and the application of light-absorbing paints, the design of the new HD objective lenses ensures that stray light can never diminish the viewing experience. Effective stray-light suppression is also instrumental in ensuring increased contrast performance.
  • Leica mechanical precusion - consistently smooth focusing
    Focusing is made even smoother by special Leica focusing mechanisms. Optimum combinations of materials and high-performance plastic floating disks are employed in their construction. The advantage of this is that focusing does not become stiff when temperatures are low, or too loose at higher temperatures.
