Let’s start with the casing. The Leica Geovid 8x42 is an instrument with significant dimensions and weight for the 42 mm class. In the two photos below you can see how the tested instrument compares with the Ultravid HD and other top-of-the-range 8x42 pairs of binoculars.

I had been carrying a 8x50 Steiner Merlin which served me very well. Love the glass and its ergonomics. However, they were too big. Additionally, I needed binoculars which could handle extreme humidity, sudden monsoon type rains, river crossings and not fog up.

After much research and trying Swarovski; Zeiss; Vortex; and Nikon, these were hands down the best binoculars for me. They are light, well built, and really bright. The clarity and color rendition is truly amazing!
