Leica’s market leading Geovid Pro 32 10×32 rangefinding binoculars have been awarded Outdoor Life’ highly coveted ‘Editor’s Choice’ award and ‘Best Overall’ in the ‘Best Rangefinders for Hunting in 2022’ category. Now in their 18th year, the annual awards are judged by a panel of optics experts, including Outdoor Life Hunting and Conservation editor Andrew McKean.
The judges’ test was divided into objective and subjective criteria – according to 10 categories includes measuring optical resolution, low-light performance, image assessment, functionality, ergonomics, versatility, durability, and value. Objective evaluations included a resolution test and measurements of field-of-view, eye relief, and true magnification. They also ran every optic through a low-light test, measuring how deep into the twilight each product could determine detail on a black-and-white resolution target.
Judge Andrew McKean commented: “Simply the smartest, most technologically advanced rangefinding binocular we’ve tested, it has the added attributes of best-in-class glass and coatings. And it’s sized right for hunters. Lastly, we assessed the extras, including the accessories that it ships with and each submission’s warranty terms. We picked one overall winner to receive our Editor’s Choice award—this year, that goes to Leica’s ground-breaking Geovid Pro 32.”
Ryan Trenka, Marketing Director at Leica Sport Optics added: “Here at Leica, we always strive to produce the best products that make the ultimate hunting companion and we are thrilled that Geovid Pro 32 was named this year’s “Best Overall” at Outdoor Life. We are proud that such a compact bino can pack so much optical performance, field proven ballistics and innovative new technologies like ProTrack, and it’s great that it’s been recognised with this reputable award.”
