LEICA GEOVID HD-B 3000 10X42 BINOCULAR
$3,000 • us.leica-camera.com
This latest Geovid mates Leica’s vivid image quality with an upgraded rangefinder that is more powerful and precise than previous models. The stylish body geometry gives this 10x42 excellent in-hand balance. When you bring the optic up, your eyes seem to fall right into the view. The controls on the Geovid are silky and precise as well, making extended glassing sessions a joy.
The rangefinder works out to 3,000 yards under ideal circumstances, and well beyond a mile (1,760 yards) even in less-than-ideal conditions, such as light precipitation. Ballistic data can be loaded into the unit to give the user a shooting solution in the viewfinder as well. Air temperature and pressure sensors and an angle indicator on the unit help with those calculations. Yes, it carries a hefty European-optic price tag, but this 10x42 is among the best big-game hunting binos that you can hang around your neck.
