These compacts from Leica are identical to the larger Ultravids in their high levels of optical and mechanical performance. This is a consequence of specially designed eyepieces that guarantee a wide and sharp view without colour fringing from edge to edge of the image. Almost all elements of the full-size Ultravids have been miniaturised to a degree that permits their integration in the bodies of these compact glasses. In addition to the rugged rubber-armoured versions, the Ultravids are also available as a BL version with premium-quality black leather trim. This lends the glasses a classical elegance and guarantees withstanding lifetime of constant use.
