The U.K. is an important country for optics in the nature market and with the imminent launch of Leica’s exciting new binocular, a number of important nature market retailers were invited to the HQ in Wetzlar to hear a presentation from product manager Nanette Roland and to thoroughly test the new Noctivid binocular.
Testing took place close to the offices and the following day participants visited the City of Frankfurt for some “Urban Birding” with Leica brand ambassador and birding expert David Lindo.
