Check Out the Latest Leica Sport Optics at NRA Annual Meetings

 

Leica Sport Optics invites you to stop by booth #3811 during the NRA 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibits to see and handle some of its newest products. Leica is officially unveiling the new Leica ER i riflescope models during the NRA event to be held in Houston, Tex., May 3-5 2013. Get a close-up look at the ER i 2.5-10×42 and the ER i 3-12×50 riflescopes, as well as the new Geovid HD-B laser rangefinder binoculars.

Boasting a lean and classic design, the two models feature Leica’s legendary optical performance and the addition of an illuminated red dot, available in three reticle configurations: 4a, Ballistic and IBS.

The ER i features a large and ergonomically designed setting dial on the left side of the riflescope, so even a gloved hunter can easily activate and adjust the illuminated dot on the reticle. Nine brightness settings, as well as clearly defined “On/Off” positions, guarantee a clear and distinct view, even during low-light hours when game animals are most active.

Leica’s sophisticated, energy-saving system ensures maximum battery conservation. On the brightest setting, the battery lifetime in continuous mode is more than 40 hours and more than 210 hours on the intermediate setting. Plus, with Leica’s intelligent “Auto On/Off” function, the illumination will turn off when not in a regular shooting position or when left on unintentionally, providing even longer battery life.

You also won’t want to miss the opportunity to examine the Geovid-HD B. This new laser rangefinder binocular contains advanced ballistics technology enabling users to add/create their own custom ballistics info for their specific firearm as well as class-leading ranging abilities.

The newly developed ballistic function ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) provides the proper aim point for the hunter and shooter. The Geovid HD-B’s integrated, highly precise ballistic processor can instantly gather and analyze the ballistic information with one touch of the button, giving accurate information for the correct hold over, turret adjustment or drop down reticle aiming point. When calculating the trajectory, the distance, angle, temperature and air pressure are all taken into account.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to review the latest in Leica new products and innovations. They’ll be plenty of Leica representatives on-hand to answer your questions regarding the impressive new products.

Introducing the Leica Sport Optics

 

Allendale, NJ: The newest in Leica Sport Optics line of laser rangefinder binoculars, the Geovid HD-B, dominated industry buzz at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

Unveiled during a SHOT Show media event, the Geovid HD-B laser rangefinder binoculars once again affirms Leica’s leadership stature as a category innovator. Considerably more evolved than its competitors, the Geovid-HD B contains advanced ballistics technology enabling users to add/create their own custom ballistics info for their specific weapon as well as class-leading ranging abilities.

The newly developed ballistic function ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) provides the proper aim point for the hunter and shooter. The Geovid HD-B’s integrated, highly precise ballistic processor can instantly gather and analyze the ballistic information with one touch of the button, giving accurate information for the correct hold over, turret adjustment or drop down reticle aiming point. When calculating the trajectory, the distance, angle, temperature and air pressure are all taken into account.

Twelve ballistic curves representing most of the trajectories of modern hunting cartridges are programmed in the system. Plus, an integrated microSD card slot, located inside the battery housing, allows the hunter to program and save personal ballistic data for his or her cartridge/rifle combination. Different ballistic information data sets can be saved on separate microSD cards for multiple cartridge/rifle use. The result is extremely precise and accurate ballistics information. Within only 0.2 seconds, the Leica GEOVID HD-B 42 displays all of the necessary information for an accurate shot, especially with steep inclinations and at long distances.

The ballistic system ABC™ allows for relevant data to be accessed for the various types of hunting and shooting:
For hunters using a classical reticle in their riflescope, the Leica GEOVID HD-B 42 shows, in addition to the measured distance, the holdover in inches or centimeters.

For hunters using ballistic reticles there is information available to display the equivalent horizontal range – as for all uses it automatically takes into consideration the angle, the temperature and the air pressure.

Hunters who use the calibrations on the fast reticle-adjustment system for impact point correction can receive holdover in ¼ MOA so you know how many clicks are necessary.

For more than 20 years, Leica has been renowned as the pioneer of laser range finding products. In 1992, Leica captured the hunting community’s attention with the introduction of the first commercially available laser rangefinder, the Leica 7×42 Geovid BD. Now Leica is continuing its success story by introducing the next generation of the popular Geovid laser range finder binoculars. With its fully programmable ballistics capabilities and class-leading ranging distance, the new Geovid HD-B exemplifies Leica’s drive behind the development of this category with the most versatile integrated ballistics system and greatest ranging capability of any laser rangefinding binocular on the market today.

Gray’s Sporting Journal Selects the Leica Trinovid 8×42 as Gray’s Best Winner

 

After extensive field testing by the Gray’s Sporting Journal staff, the Leica Trinovid 8×42 binoculars has received the 2012 Gray’s Best Award for the Shooting category.

Each year, Grays Sporting Journal editors test hundreds of products in a variety of categories, and each year, a few stand out among the crowd.

According to James Babb, editor of Gray’s Sporting Journal, “A Grays Best winner is a product that tries a little harder, does something a little better; is somehow just more satisfying than similar products.”

Leica Sport Optics team is honored to receive this prestigious award.

“Being recognized by such an authoritative voice in the community is always an extraordinary honor,” Jeff Bouton, Leica Sport Optics marketing manager, says. “This is a fantastic holiday treat and a great way to kick off what will undoubtedly be a banner year for Leica!”

The Trinovid 8×42 binoculars will be featured in Gray’s annual Expedition & Guides 2013 issue and Leica will receive a plaque honoring the Trinovid’s selection.

Of the new Trinovid, Terry Weiland, Gray’s Sporting Journal editor for the Shooting category, writes, “It’s not just a product reintroduction; it’s a revival with improvements made possible by advances in technology.”

The premium entry level Leica Trinovid 8×42 model features the same body and frame as the Leica Ultravid, but with a few cost-saving features.

Features include stainless-steel center hinge, large eye cups with four stops and a fantastic light-weight design for easy use. The Roof prism system features P40 phase correction coating and the HLS™ HighLux system for fascinating viewing impressions. You’ll find no plastic parts on Trinovid binoculars because even though the Trinovids are affordable, the quality is top-rate.

Leica Introduces Completely Updated Trinovid 8×42 and 10×42 Binoculars

A Leica classic is back and it’s better than ever. Leica is excited to introduce its updated Trinovid premium entry level binoculars at the 2012 SHOT Show. The first Trinovids were known for their innovative prism design and unparalleled optical performance. The latest models, available in 8×42 BR and 10×42 BR, feature a rugged design making them the ideal binos for hunters everywhere.

According to Terry Moore, Leica Sport Optics vp sales & marketing, “In everything we do at Leica, our objective is to be best in class. We developed the new Trinovids to be fully-featured and to maintain Leica’s high standard for exceptional engineering while providing superior value and performance as the new Best in Class of premium entry-level binoculars.”

Thanks to magnesium housing, the Trinovids are extremely lightweight, yet they’re durable enough to handle rugged conditions and unpredictable weather thanks to the rubber armouring. Choose the 8x magnification for relaxed observation or the 10x magnification for high detail performance. The 42 mm objective lens delivers optimal light for viewing, even in less than optimal conditions. Both model Trinovids provide great contrast/neutral color correction thanks to high quality premium optics.

Features include a stainless-steel center hinge and large eye cups with 4 stops. Even though the Trinovids are affordable, the premium manufacturing and optical quality for which all Leica sport optics are renowned is obvious. For example, you won’t find any plastic parts on the watertight Trinovid, and the Roof prism system features P40 phase correction coating and the HLS™ HighLux system for fascinating viewing impressions.
