Leica Noctivid 10×42 review | Live Science


The Leica Noctivid 10×42 binoculars come in both olive green and black colorways and 8x and 10x magnifications for each color. They cost a pretty penny (the best part of $4,800) so they will be out of the price range for all but the most committed observers. However, for the money you will get beautiful pair of binoculars that will stand out in any collection.

Leica Noctivid 10×42 specs:

Design: Roof prism

Magnification: 10x (8x also available)

Objective lens aperture: 42mm

Angular field of view:  6.4 degrees

Eye relief: 19mm (0.74-in)

Weight:  1.9 lbs (862 g)

Dimensions: 4.88 x 6.06 x 2.68-inches (124 x 154 x 68 mm)

Fortunately they’re not style over substance — excellent optical clarity is brought about through high-quality lens coatings, and the strong but lightweight magnesium body means this a pair is built to last.
