Leica Monovid 8x20
The small, high-performance monocular in a modern design
Leica Monovid – the perfect companion wherever you go

In fact, you should never leave it at home. The Leica Monovid 8x20 is an essential for birdwatchers, hikers, opera and concert goers or visitors to sporting events - just the thing for fans of superior optical performance who also appreciate highest-quality equipment. The design of the Monovid is captivatingly elegant, but above all its outstanding optical performance puts it in a class of its own. Thanks to its eightfold magnification, its users can identify even the finest structures of the tiniest objects. A separate close-up lens that simply screws into the thread at the front of the glass reduces its close focusing limit to a mere 25 cm (9.8 in.), and transforms the Monovid into a first-class magnifier.

Monovid 8x20

The Monovid features nitrogen filling to prevent internal fogging and water and dirt repellent AquaDura® coating on all exposed lens surfaces. Furthermore, in contrast to other monoculars, it is not only water-resistant, but fully waterproof to a depth of 5 m (16.5 ft). It is extremely handy and versatile and is the featherweight of its class at only 112 g / 3.95 oz.

It slips comfortably into any jacket pocket and is a constantly ready and able companion. Particularly practical: when not in use, its close-up lens can be stored safely in the leather case provided. The best place to keep it safe and sound; screwed tight, so it can't be lost. Yet another advantage is the silent magnetic clasp of its refined and elegant tubular case.
