Since the rebate offered ending 30 April was not promptly or well advertised, and it was somewhat confusing as it was limited to only two models, Leica is making up for that by offering an even better $350 mail-in rebate that applies to their finest full size models including: ULTRAVID or ULTRAVID HD 32 or 42mm, or Geovid* binoculars. To qualify simply purchase your new binocular from Company Seven, an Authorized North American Leica Retailer, between May 15 through September 30, 2009 and receive the $350 rebate directly from Leica Camera, Inc. by mail!
*The original announcement included the Geovid HD models however, Leica later issued a correction notice stating these would not be in the rebate. As a tangible expression of their regret Leica agreed to honor rebates for Geovid HD but only of sold by Company Seven through 25 May

With the objective of turning observations that are rich in details into an unforgettable experience, even at great distances, Leica binoculars have traditionally set the standards of brilliance, sharpness and brightness. And now, Leica has succeeded in establishing an entirely new category: the ULTRAVID binocular line. Logically tailored to the intended use, every technical and ergonomic detail that went into the development of the ULTRAVID has been painstakingly examined, perfected or completely reinvented. A housing made of magnesium, a central hinge shaft of extremely sturdy titanium - which materials could possibly be more robust and lighter at the same time?
The optics incorporate the new HighLux System (HLS), an optical coating that is unequalled. By means of a special mirror layer on the prism system that yields a level reflection of 99.5 %, it was possible to raise the image brightness significantly over the prior generation models. This among those attributes that makes the impressively high resolution imaging performance, and striking enhanced contrast possible.
A brief overview of the ULTRAVID model line up:
ULTRAVID BR AND BL BINOCULAR SPECIFICATIONS
1 February 2002: Leica Announces Duovid Binocular, and Binocular Tripod Adapter Two binoculars in one: the Leica Duovid 8 + 12 x 42 heralds a new era in binoculars. The Duovid 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. This may be the best way to achieve the "zoom" capability of being able to close in on a target, without suffering from the compromises typically found in binocular zoom eyepiece designs.

At the famous "Photokina" photographic industry trade show this year Leica announced the new TRINOVID BN binocular series.
Increasingly, many nature lovers would like a pair of LEICA TRINOVID binoculars that focuses at shorter distances. Leica is now catering to this demand with the new TRINOVID BN models. With the new TRINOVID BN, Leica now offers ideal possibilities of getting really close to nature, as the new TRINOVID BN binoculars feature two major innovations: a significantly improved close-focus range, and Leica's HDC™ optical coating.
The new BN binoculars have improved close-focus of between 2.10 m (10x32 BN) and 3.60 m (8x50 BN). The close-focus distance is of particular interest for field ornithology, insect watching, general nature observation and forestry. Leica's HTC™ optical coating is a multiple coating that is extremely resistant to abrasion and other environmental influences. This high resistance is achieved by a special process in which the coating materials are applied to the lens elements in a high-vacuum plasma technique.
The TRINOVID BN binoculars inherit the well-proven features of the previous TRINOVID BA models, such as the trend setting Leica Design, the high-quality optics with the successful Leica multiple coating, the Schmidt-Pechan pentaprisms and the true internal focusing, water tightness to a depth of 5 m, the patented multifunctional central drive, the high-point eyepieces with sliding eyecups and the polyurethane armoring.
n.b.: The coating has already been used for other binoculars, but is being advertised for the first time with the launch of the BN binoculars. The BC binoculars also feature HDC™ optical coating (but not the spotting scopes).
Interesting for our customers worldwide: TRINOVID BN binoculars are supplied with a new instruction manual translated into six languages ( German, English, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish).
The 'A' suffix in the name of the previous models stood for 'armored'. This has now been replaced by an 'N' indicating the improved near-focus range. On the outside, the new BN binoculars can be differentiated from BA models only by the BN on their name plate, and by Leica product model numbers.
Please note: the 8x32 BN and 10x32 BN models will not replace the BA types until year 2001. The 8x32 BA and 10x32 BA already have an extremely good near focus range. As Leica cannot launch all the types at once for logistic reasons, Leica has decided to launch the 7x42, 8x42, 10x42, and the 8x50, 10x50, and 12x50 models first. Company Seven is already delivering the new BN models as they come into the U.S.A.
