Lovely
 
I've been using this gem daily as a professional Naturalist for over a month now. I love that I can wear the case on my belt and be un-encumbered for daily naturalist duties such as carrying nets and buckets, wrangling wildlife and children during programs, and hiking the trails for research. In such situations I often felt burdened by my full size Swarovski Els. Now I can just quickdraw this baby out whenever a warbler, butterfly, dragonfly, turtle or mammal requires my attention. Excellent opt...

Quality and Elegance!
 
This little gem simply exudes quality and elegance! From the moment that I opened the perfectly fitted packaging, I could see that this was a truly superior instrument. The build quality is outstanding, and the image is crisp and clear from edge to edge; color rendition is excellent The view while wearing glasses is no problem due to the well-designed retractable eyecup.The included leather case is also extremely elegant…perhaps too elegant to take into the field. It is also rather bulky which ...

Perfect for hunting
 
I have owned and used several pair of binoculars for hunting. They performed well, but were heavy and big - even the little Nikon 10x25. Just too much bulk and weight under a hunting coat or in a side pocket. I bought the Leica 8x20 monocular as an experiment, to see if I could use it some of the time. It has performed so well that I now carry only it into the woods.In any legal hunting light, I am able to clearly see my quarry and make quick, informed decisions. A neck strap lets it stay wa...

Nice Compact Optic
 
I ordered this monocular while on a five month motorcycle trip, having forgotten to take my small Leica binoculars. This unit is in keeping with the optical quality of my other Leica sport optics. The Monovid is very compact and rugged. It will easily fit in a shirt pocket. Additionally, its waterproofness and hydroscopic lens coating mean it will make an excellent mobile hunter's tool, and I will likely use it as such in lieu of my green 7x42 Ultravid binoculars. It is easy to hold stable using...

Great Monocular
 
A+ to Leica for this optical marvel. Super sharp, bright, contrasty images. Weatherproof, ergonomic, and just plain cool-looking. I also really find that the classy fitted leather case and macro lens complete the package. Simply put, great quality is always worth it. Also, B&H really took great care of me here. To date, they have been professional, efficient, and very fair with their pricing and policies.

Lens cap?
 
There's only one thing that's keeping me from giving this 5 stars and it would cost Leica about 5 cents. I wish it had a lens cap for the front element. I don't always want the bulk of the leather carrying case and I don't want to carry it with a lens that's not protected. Anyone know where I could get a cap that would fit?

Very Pleased with Puchase
 
Walking my dogs in a wooded area every morning and most evenings, I often hear owls or herons and wished I could get a good look at them. I had a pair of decent-quality binoculars, but this Leica Monocular is worlds better. It is compact, very high quality, and I now carry it with me each time I go. I love it, and wished I had bought one years ago. Took it to the symphony yesterday and, again, so glad I purchased this take-along!

Great monocular
 
I am a long-time user of the Leica 8x20s, and they are my choice for hiking and travelling because of their size, weight, and optical excellence. I wanted an even smaller optic to carry when the 8x20s didn't seem warranted, and the 8x20 Monovid fit my requirements perfectly. It has the same optical and build quality as the 8x20s in a single barrel, small package, as well as the same eye cup and relief, which works for me and my glasses. I hold it cupped in the palm of one hand and use the other ...

Monovid simply works.
 
This is a very high quality item that is simple to use with excellent optics. I am a professional photographer and tend to review glass with a critical eye. The Leica doesn't dissappoint and its weight and size are just about perfect. Image stability at 8X isn't an issue if you brace your fingers to your forehead and palm the Mono in the webbing of your thumb and index finger. Mine came with a neckstrap even though I read that it didn't, so I purchased one separately and now have two...
