Remarks:

Built “like a tank”, the Trinovid BA is one of the heaviest 12x50s we have seen. It was built between 1995 and 2000 and still impresses with its bright, high-contrast image; it exhibits a slightly warm tone (without being yellowish, though), the wide spot is relatively wide, the edge sharpness acceptable. There are still many avid birders out there with this impressive bino or one of its smaller Trinovid BA “siblings”. Some consider the BA and BN Trinovids the best classic Leica binoculars, being for Leica what the legendary “Victory FL” binoculars were for Zeiss.
