For the first time, a unique variable wide-angle eyepiece now complements the eyepiece range. Its performance data speaks for itself : 25 - 50 x WW ASPH with a subjective field of view of more than 60° across the entire zoom range. Consequently, Leica enables viewing experiences which are unique on this scale.
The newly developed interchangeable bayonet system has an integrated, automatic eyepiece lock, which fixes all eyepieces securely to the scope. Thanks to the entirely new construction of the optical system, the eyepiece's focal length is now also independent of the 65 mm or 82 mm scope being used, and is retained when the eyepieces are changed. The eyepiece has new, rubberised function elements and comfortable rotating eyecups, which significantly increases comfort when viewing. As a result, the eyepiece is particularly good to get hold of and also easy to handle when wearing gloves. The eyepiece is also waterproof up to 17ft (5m) plus, to maintain peak performance and prevent fogging, it is nitrogen filled.
The new variable wide-angle zoom eyepiece 25 - 50 x WW ASPH. is supplied with all APO models and is also available individually as an accessory.
