Grab-and-go glass

When you’re traveling light, the Leica 8×20 Monovid could be just what you need to enhance your view of the action around you. This lightweight and compact high-performance monocular goes where binoculars fear to tread — backpacking, mountain biking, or even to a concert or sporting event. Anywhere you just can’t afford the albatross of binoculars around your neck, take the Monovid.

So many times with binoculars, by the time I stop my bike and get them out, my bird has flown. With the Monovid, just reach into your pocket — or the handy included belt-loop case — and get your closer look before you can say “glossy ibis.” Its fantastic coated glass lens system will give you bright, clear, high-contrast images with lifelike colors, all through a monocular about the size of a bratwurst.

Lecia 8x20 Monovide

Leica’s lightweight, easy-to-stash Monovid 8×20 monocular gives you fast access to an enhanced view.

Need to see close-up?

The Monovid comes with a close-up conversion lens that lets you see the small stuff like insects or flowers from as close as 10 inches. Screw the close-up lens onto the front of the monocular and you’ll see the fine details — hairy insect legs and all.

When you’re not using it, the conversion lens fits safely in the included belt loop case. And this leather case’s silent magnetic fastener won’t frighten nearby wildlife away when you open or shut it.

The right stuff for wet conditions

The Monovid’s nitrogen-filled aluminum body prevents misting, and its AquaDura™ lens coating repels water and dirt. It’s also fully waterproof to a depth of 5m (16-1/2 feet) — so you can feel safe scanning and focusing it even in the rain or salt spray.

Experience Leica quality and design

Leica optics are among the best in the world. I learned photography on my dad’s old 1950’s Leica M3, and I bet it’s still taking great images for the lucky person he eventually sold it to.  With top-notch glass and coatings coupled with design refinements that reflect Leica’s 150-year-plus history in the optics business, this compact monocular is also built to last a lifetime — and more.

table rubber eyecup makes it easy to position your eye at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort. The eyecup can be extended for non-eyeglass wearers, or retracted to accommodate eyeglass wearers. The eye relief is 15mm.
