Leica Trinovid is synonymous with superior optical performance. The Trinovoid line solidified thanks to its diverse offerings of compact and full-size binoculars. The units are famous for their robustness thanks to innovative prism technology. They are a mainstay for professionals and nature enthusiasts who want high-quality vision at an average price.
The Trinovid 42 is the Leica Premium binocular. The vice president of sales and marketing for the Sport Optics division says the development process for all Leica products is done with the goal of being best in class. Trinivoid 42 is no exception. According to Leica, the new Trinovids line remains true to the seal of its product line. It has superior engineering and a value to performance ratio
Leica Trinovid Premium Beginner Binoculars are made from the highest quality materials. The binocular housing contains no plastic parts. The entire outer body is made of durable magnesium. For dual strength, meant to withstand even the toughest terrain, the magnesium case is encapsulated in rubber armor.
The units are completely waterproof up to five meters. The waterproofness of the Trinovid 42 collection contrasts with the waterproof construction of the Leica Trinovid 25 collection. In addition, the Trinovid 42 collection has a nitrogenous interior. Nitrogen makes binoculars fog proof, a must in wet or cold climates.
Its stainless steel hinge construction and oversized eye cups allow for comfortable viewing. The 10 × 42 contains 16 millimeters of eye relief, while the 8 × 42 model is the second closest with 15.5 millimeters of eye relief. This is great news for those who wear prescription glasses. The eye relief of both models is not so compact that the outer edge of the field will be lost or severely narrowed.
The Trinovid comes in the following configurations:
- 8 × 32
- 8 × 42
- 10 × 32
- 10 × 42
The Leica Trinovid has always been known for its distinctive and revolutionary prism design that gives it superior optical performance. However, with all the power concentrated in the new Trinovids, the improvements can be said to go well beyond a minor update. The Trinovid 42 collection has been developed to be intuitive in its adjustability, powerful in performance, compact for easy handling and ergonomic.
The roof prism design offers a superior P40 phase correction coating. An additional layer of mirror, which was not previously offered, increases total light transmission by 99.5 percent. This HighLux system, known as HLS, makes images brighter to increase users’ viewing pleasure and accuracy. The HLS system, along with its improvements in optical and mechanical construction, minimizes the occurrence of stray light dramatically.
The Leica Trinovid 10 × 42 has a field of view of 326 feet at 100 yards. That said, the 8 × 42’s field of view is the true mind blower at 378 feet at 1000 yards. Sure, the 8 × 42 can be used as a wide angle binocular. That will please many avid bird watchers and hunters. However, for those looking for a short-range view, such as observing nature in general, butterflies, small animals, or anything in close proximity, the Trinovid would not be a top choice.
Unsurprisingly, the Leica Trinovid adheres to the high degree of style, durability, and internal construction for which it is known. Although the price is extremely reasonable, for its function and power, nothing was compromised. So the only real options you have left, once you buy one, are: fancy a wide field view or higher magnification? Almost all other adjustments are taken into account in technology. Overall, the Leica Trinovid is pretty impressive if you want to get maximum viewing power for your money.
