According to the press release, these binoculars are able to range targets up to 2,600 and 2,950 yards. According to the specifications page for the 10×42 version, it has a field of view of 325 yards at 1000 yards and weighs 32.6 ounces without the strap and caps. Meopta’s full press release can be read below:
TAMPA, FL, February 2, 2021 – Meopta is pleased to introduce the MeoPro Optika LR series. Available in 10×42 HD and 8×50 HD models, these high-performance laser rangefinding binoculars quickly measure distance up to 2,600 yards and 2,950 yards, respectively.
The Optika LR’s premium European optics with HD fluoride glass and Meopta’s advanced MeoLux lens coating deliver exceptionally bright images in low light with maximum resolution and contrast. Color fidelity is true throughout the entire field of view and the MeoDrop hydrophobic coating ensures a clear view, even in the most extreme weather conditions.
The fast and accurate integrated laser rangefinder features three modes: Auto – which provides continuous ranging of moving targets. Near Ranging – which ranges the closest object in the aiming circle, and Far Ranging – which ranges the farthest object in the aiming circle to ensure an accurate reading in situations where there may be objects in the foreground, such as tree limbs or tall grass, that could interfere with a less precisely calibrated rangefinder. The two distance modes offer an advantage to those who frequently hunt in varied terrains. Incline data is also measured for accurate angle compensation in the field.
The illuminated OLED display can be set to yards or meters and features four levels of brightness control. Display readings automatically shut off after 10 seconds to extend battery life. The Optika LR also features twist-up eyecups, dual diopter adjustments, and a low battery indicator.
The magnesium alloy body and rubber armoring make the Optika LR rugged enough for use in the most brutal terrain. It is fully waterproof, shockproof, and its optical and mechanical performance is backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.
Optika LR 10×42 HD $1,499.99
Optika LR 8×50 HD $1,874.99
While the cost may be prohibitive to some, the concept of combining two pieces of equipment for hiking, hunting, tactical situations, or anything in between seems like a good idea.
