At the British Birdwatching Fair, held at the end of August 2007 at Rutland Water, Leica Camera AG of Germany will be exhibiting a new generation of Leica Ultravid binoculars. The optical performance of the new Leica Ultravid HD high-end binoculars is significantly increased in comparison to previous models. This increased performance is a result of the redesign of the optical system towards increased definition (hence the name HD for High Definition) which is implemented in the new Leica Ultravid models with lens diameter from 32 mm in the Leica Ultravid 8x32 HD through to the Leica Ultravid12 x 50 HD. The new Leica Ultravid HD models will be available from Leica retailers from November 2007.
