Leica pioneered rangefinding binoculars, and 26 years later its groundbreaking Geovid HD-B 3000 leads the category in effective range—now extended to a whopping 3,000 yds. And the innovation doesn’t stop with that benchmark. The Geovid 3000’s LED display self-adjusts its brightness to match the ambient light and boasts a Fast Scan mode that can provide fresh readings every half-second. What’s more, the optic contains a fully programmable ballistics calculator that not only spits out point-of-aim corrections almost instantly, but also inputs environmental factors such as temperature, barometric pressure and shot angle. Built around Leica’s unique, compact Perger prisms, these binos deliver stunning optical clarity and wide fields of view from an ergo-friendly tool that eases prolonged glassing stints. The new glasses come in two sizes—8X 42 mm and 10X 42 mm. leica-sportoptics.com
