About the Monovid series
A good monocular has become quite demanding to find and it was a pleasant surprise for many enthusiasts when Leica presented a new 8×20 Monovid in 2009. Ever since then, their model is still one of the best products offered on the market.
Monovid has a Roof prism with phase correction coating P40. Its outer lens is coated with High Durable Coating (HDC™) and with water and dirt repellent AquaDura coating. The latter keeps the monocular clear and easy to use in bad weather conditions. It is also completely sealed and filled with nitrogen gas to prevent the internal fogging. The eyepiece is fully padded with a pull-out system, offering eye relief of 15 mm. Eye relief is sufficient to achieve a full field of view (110/ 1000m) and is also suitable for eyeglass wearers. The focusing system is internal via central focusing knob in the shape of a ring positioned around the device.
Monovids are available in three different versions; elegant black, red and aluminium. They are made of excellent materials, precisely combined together. The armoring is made from genuine leather that offers good grip and ergonomics. Its elegant and small design is perfect for birdwatchers, hikers, concert-goers, sports fans and travelers to instantly enjoy the observation. With a weight of only 112 g, it can be stored in any pocket and will most definitely be a great companion.
All Monovids are made in Portugal.
