Leica Trinovid 8x20 BA
Brilliant optics, intelligent design, precision engineering, Armageddon-proof build, lightweight and compact. Very good with eyeglasses. The all-time classic pocket binocular - all you need for daylight observation.

Expensive - but not when you compare it to rival top-end compacts. Virtually as good as the newer (and much more expensive) Ultravid 8x20.

Leica Trinovid 8x20 BA
jumelle passe partout, mais avec 20 mm d'objectif, les qualités optiques et le confort d'utilisation sont en net retrait par rapport au 8x et 10x 32 mm.
a déconseiller pour un usage astronomie, la pupille de 2.5 mm est insuffisante en toute circonstance.

A perfect compact binocular, without any doubt.
It is extremely bright and clear for size, just similar to a decent 8x42 phase coated roof. The field is very large and suitable for eye-glass wearer. Even the big brother 12x50 BN cannot put it to shame!

Mechanically it is excellent. Sturdy, waterproof and light weight you can bring it to everywhere!

The only drawback is price. It is 4-5 times more expensive than ordinary compact roof. But you get what you paid.

Every time I have the chance to compare similar binoculars the results are the same - the Leitz Trino's are waaay better than the others. In fact, I have a similar pair of Zeiss miniature roof prism types that also are a pleasure to look through, but are not quite up to the Leitz in overall optical quality. My eyes are very sensitive to collimation and power matching of the barrels, and I usually get a severe headache after only a couple minutes using nearly any of the inexpensive binoc's of the Swift/Bushnell/Tasco variety. The little Leitz, however, is relaxing to my eyes, a pleasure to use and with a field that is surprisingly flat, well-corrected and with minimal softness at the periphery. Truly an example of how much small roof prism types have evolved since the 40's.

Not only the best compact to look through but the only true shirt pocketable.

Brightest compacts ever seen. Perfect clarity to edge. Very light, but not the most comfortable on the eye.
