LEICA Silverline 8x42 Binoculars, Silver (40653)

Vendor: Leica



The LEICA Silverline 8x42 Binoculars, Silver (40653) are not only robust, they are also ideal for use in conditions of low visibility and poor light. Thanks to their exceptional image brightness, these high-end binoculars let you detect an approaching storm front, for example, far on the horizon. So you can react instantly.

Their compact housing contains remarkably precise technology. The large focus wheel is highly practical and easy to use. Ergonomically designed to sit comfortably in your hand, it lets you set the focus quickly and accurately in every situation. With their short focusing range - a little more than one rotation of the focus wheel - Silverline binoculars can be precisely focused in seconds.

High-Durable Coatings (HDC) on external lenses improve image quality and protect the lenses from scratches and harmful environmental effects. The High-Lux System produces nearly 100% light transmission per glass-to-air surface, thus giving the user the absolute finest image contrast and most natural color rendition across the entire spectrum.

The Silverline full size binoculars have a die-cast magnesium body that is nitrogen-filled to prevent internal fogging, and their lenses are coated with water and dirt repellent AquaDura coating. These binoculars are also fully waterproof to a depth of 16.5 ft / 5 m.

The Silverline 8x42 Binoculars include a leather carrying strap, contoured, eyepiece cover, and case. The binoculars offer Leica's 3-year Passport Protection Plan plus Lifetime Limited Warranty, which is the strongest warranty in the high-performance segment of the optics industry.
