A lot of people seem to be confused about the new Leica Geovid HD-R introduced in February of 2015.
The Leica Geovid HD-R has been around for a long time, but Leica recently updated it with the same ground breaking design changes that were added to the Leica Geovid HD-B.
The new Leica Geovid HD-R is known as the Leica Geovid HD-R 42mm (Type 402 & Type 403). The model numbers are below:
- 40052 8×42 Leica Geovid HD-R, typ 402, featuring open hinge design
- 40054 10×42 Leica Geovid HD-R, typ 403, featuring open hinge design
The new Leica Geovid HD-R shares many of the same features with the new Leica Geovid HD-B – mostly the difference is just the lack of a ballistics calculator.
Straight from the Leica literature is the story of the new Leica Geovid HD-R:
Some of the features these Leicas share are:
Vastly improved optical performance utilizing our exciting new Perger Porro prism system. The new Geovid transmits more light and offers an amazingly, wide field of view (10x = 374’ @ 1,000 yards). This means these are more effective than ever for scanning the horizon for hidden game. The range-finding abilities are improved as well, and the new Geovid can effectively range out to 2,000 yards – the longest ranging capabilities in class.
If you have the old straight body HD-R design, its time to take advantage of updates in technology and get either the new HD-B’s or the newest to the family the updated HD-R from Leica.
