Doug E 02.08.21
Meopta has just introduced a new rangefinding binocular, the MeoPro Optika LR, that has long range capability, and of course, anything in between. The Optika LR rangefinding binoculars will be available in 10×42 and 8×50 magnifications, although currently, the only photos available are for the 10×42 version. The rangefinding distances are 2,600 yards for the 10 power, and 2,950 yards for the 8 power binoculars. The capabilities of the new Optika LR binoculars could be applied toward hunting, tactical situations, or anything else you may want to combine rangefinding and magnified optics with. The 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.“
