The pricing is not available at this point, however, I am thinking less than a 10% increase over current pricing

To be off topic a little...is there any scoop on Lieca's new riflescopes??

I think I'll be holding onto my Ultravids for awhile longer! Now, if Leica would come out with one in 15x60.... I'd be tempted to break out the checkbook.

Sako, they have fluoride glass, hydrophobic lens coatings, redesigned focus mechanism and the lens coatings are tweaked (3% brighter).

Yes, but I'd still prefer a 15x60 Ultravid. The Geovid warranty keeps my checkbook tightly closed!

Another feature that Leica needs to update/change..... a decent tripod adapter.

The only "upgrade" I'm interested in would involve a 7x32 Ultravid...


Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose.

I agree 100% with FOS on both items, make that all 3 actually.

I can see my Leica trinovid 10x50's going up forsale to get the 8x50's...looking forward to seeing what the new 8x50's are worth.

sounds like some great improvements but i still question the "need" for FL glass in a hunting binocular of 7x, 8x, or 10x?
When looking for big game, rarely will chromatic abberations be present in the color scenarios I typically look at it.

What else does FL glass bring?

Sako75,

Fluorite is for correction chromatic aberration, I don't recall ever reading about any other virtues.
