Leica heralds a new era in binoculars:
The LEICA DUOVID 8 + 12 x 42 is the first high-end binocular worldwide that features a magnification rate that can be switched from 8x to 12x.

That enables the binocular to be tailored to diverse observation situations. The 8x magnification provides you with a good overview. By switching to the 12x magnification, you can then get really close to your subject and examine fine details – and that with astounding sharpness and color fidelity.
