Leica V-Lux 5 Discovery Kit

Wetzlar, 22 November 2022

The Ideal Travel Equipment for Photographing, Filming and Observing – Now with a Price Advantage.

The possibilities with the Leica V-Lux 5 Discovery Kit are just as varied as the experiences, situations and requirements on trips and during outdoor activities. It comprises the superzoom camera Leica V-Lux 5 including the robust Leica Rope Strap designed by COOPH and the compact binoculars Leica Ultravid 8x20 BR. Thus, explorers are ideally equipped to travel light and still photograph, film and observe in outstanding quality. From 22nd November to 4th December 2022, Leica Camera AG will offer the V-Lux 5 Discovery Kit exclusively at the Leica Online Store with a price advantage of 250 euros.

The Leica V-Lux 5 covers almost all distances with its DC Vario-Elmarit 9.1–146 f/2.8–4 ASPH. lens, because the enormous zoom range of 25 to 400 mm (equiv. in 35 mm format) enables wide-angle, standard, telephoto and macro shots. Thanks to a large 1-inch sensor, the high-end compact camera captures subjects brilliantly, richly detailed and in the highest resolution, even in poor ambient light, while the fast autofocus only needs up to 0.1 seconds to focus.

The Leica Ultravid 8x20 BR binoculars included in the Kit stand out due to high-contrast, razor-sharp and bright images and – despite their compactness – are in no way inferior to large binoculars. Moreover, they are easy to fold and can be stowed in your luggage or jacket pocket with minimum space requirements.

The Discovery Kit is completed by the robust blue Leica Rope Strap designed by COOPH. Made of mountaineering rope, the carrying strap ensures a safe and comfortable transport of the Leica V-Lux 5.

The Leica V-Lux 5 Discovery Kit will be available exclusively at the Leica Online Store from 22nd November to 4th December 2022. The recommended retail price will be 1,940.00 euros including VAT.
