Thanks to multilayer plasma lens coatings, Leica achieves natural colour fidelity and outstanding light transmission. During construction, the lenses are covered with plasma layers that are only a few nanometres thick and are evaporated in a vacuum using a high-temperature plasma process. All lenses are made exclusively of glass produced by highly respected manufacturers – for minimal absorption.
Every riflescope offers particularly low vignetting – for maximum light-gathering power, especially at low magnification.
Leica possesses extraordinary expertise when it comes to stray-light suppression. For the simulation of stray-light and reflection, Leica uses its own software. The optimisation of lens distances, diametres and radii, along with the precise placing of light traps and baffles, have always been important elements in the development and manufacturing of Leica riflescopes and binoculars – for crisp and clear images.
Maximum contrast means: black is black and not dark grey; white is white and not light grey. High-resoution optics can only realise their true potential with maximum contrast. Using a combination of stray-light suppression, a choice of superior glass types and bold and extreme lens shapes, Leica creates fantastic contrast, giving you precise and detailed images, even in poor light.
