Description

The Monovid 8 x 20 with 8 x magnification fits in your jacket, shirt, or trouser pocket. It is light, robust, and brilliantly easy to use, making it the perfect take-anywhere companion.

Thanks to its accessory close-up lens, you can view objects at distances as close as 10 12 in which is perfect for viewing butterflies and insects. Simply screwing this accessory to the front lens produces a macro effect that lets you identify even the finest structures.

The Monovid can be used as a mini-telescope, 1/2 a binocular, or a macroscope. Its light, small, stealthy, and quite luxurious - whether you're scoping a performer on stage, birding, or investigating the insects - you'll be glad you didn't leave home without it.

When not in use, the lens can be safely stored in the leather case provided. Inside the Monovid's elegant leather carry case there's a special pocket for a very special attachment - the close-up lens. Installing this accessory onto the monocular allows viewers to achieve 8 x magnification at distances as close as 9.8/ 25 cm - this macro-effect viewing is excellent for observing the finest details that are often impossible to see through larger optics.

Naturally, it is also a choice among all who appreciate elegantly designed, high-quality optics.

Small in size with great optic quality

Small but fantastic optics. We hike a lot and the goal is always to minimize the load. This gives us a much better image than an expensive set of binoculars without having to readjust for other people's eye acuity. Having to only look through your strongest eye gives you a good clear image. Great product and it's worth the high price tag

Great quality monocular

I bought the Leica monocular as a replacement for a lost Zeiss 10 x 25 monocular that I used for many years. The 10 power Zeiss is a bit hard to hold still and the field of view is a bit narrow. Based on Amazon reviews and wanting 8x, I went with the Leica.Comparing the two, the Leica wins hands down because of better eye relief and field of view.The Leica misses the mark with the case, strap and lens caps.Typically you see people wearing binoculars or monoculars with a neck strap. The Leica monocular comes with a wrist strap.Actually, the strap is a bit too long for a wrist strap, and not long enough for a neck strap.The Leica case is better than needed and is a bit too large in diameter. The case has a belt loop, but my belt space is already allocated for a cellphone case.(The Zeiss monocular has a thin zippered case with a neck strap going through a case grommet. In use, the zippered case is slid a few inches down the strap, and after use of the monocular it is returned to the case by sliding the case down the neck strap. Thus the need for lens caps is eliminated. )Focus could be done with one hand if the focus ring had been at the top. With the Leica monocular, the focus control is near the bottom and thus two hands are required for focus. The focus knob seems a bit stiff and hopefully will become smoother with use.The Leica comes with a top lens cap. A bottom cap is not that important if the monocular is normally carried in the case.Personally, I use the monocular with a bottom lens cap bought at a sporting goods store. I use a neck strap salvaged from an old GPS handheld unit.I leave the monocular case in my camera bag.Optically, the Leica monocular is terrific. I dinged it a star because of the strap and case usability.Pros:Great optics, eye relief and FOV for a small monocularCase is very well made.Cons:A bit priceyI'd prefer a neck strap and two lens caps or a slide on case.Belt loop only case is not convenient for my use.

I give it 5 stars for build quality and box presentation. But for optics, it is not anywhere near close to being worth the price. I wasn't sure how to rate it as a result with stars so I gave it 3 stars.I compared this to a Vortex Solo 8x36 (10 x cheaper) and tried my best to tell a difference in optic quality over a period of 2 weeks, switching back and forth on the same objects at the same distances with both. I could not find any, maybe a bit less aberration but nothing you would notice unless you tried nitpicking while staring at a still object for 10 or more minutes.

Compact, sturdy construction. Very high quality overall, with crystal clear optics. Expensive, but worth every penny.

This is a wonderful monocular very much meeting Leica quality. The extra lens for allowing microscopic examination is terrific. As an added bonus, every time you look through it you will feel cool, like you're smarter than everyone else. Binoculars don't do that, folks.

These are a great, small

I see a lot of waterfowl, ships, and wild animals on my morning walks. These are a great, small, lightweight piece of gear to keep in my jacket pocket for times I want to ID something far away. Great, clear vision. Enough magnification to ID birds out to medium distances, but not so much as to give you tunnel vision. Admits enough light to work in all but the darkest light.

It is a Leica which all that needs to be said. Made in Portugal but would be hard pressed to see any difference from the German made products.

I am really please with the quality of the glass. Compared it to my Swavorski 820 binocs. Leica won in terms of clarity. Also ordered the Butler Creek Lens Cover in size 02a. Fits very snug!

Best choice for a monocular

Excellent build quality and optics. The other famous German optic company's equivalent feels like a child's toy compared to this. If you want a monocular for carry convenience this is the on to get, and the close-up lens is works great. The one thing that is odd, why they include a wrist cord instead of a neck cord is very strange. I can't imagine carrying this around dangling from your wrist, you would certainly risk scratching the very fine lenses.

The best optics although there are lighter choices

With 1st tier lenses as their high end binoculars this waterproof monocular gives you great chromatic pop and clarity when birding. The only downside is that at 4 ounces it weighs twice as much as the Zeiss 6x20 and at 8 power it takes some practice to hold it steady enough. Admittedly the Zeiss 6x20 monocular is not waterproof but only water resistant, it's the second tier Zeiss optics rather than 1st tier, and the sliding focus is not as natural as the turning ring. But if you're looking for the lightest then it's the Zeiss and the optics are good enough. If you're willing to take 2 more ounces though the Leica Monocular has by far the best glass and it's fully waterproof. A tour de force of manufacturing quality.
