I see that SWFA lists the 8x42 Ultravid HD a couple hundred dollars less than the standard Ultravid series - are the newer HD series of lesser quality? Thanks.

No, the Ultravid HD is a slight step up in image quality over the standard Ultravid, with fluorite lens elements and supposedly improved prism coatings.  HD also has an improved focuser and the "AquaDura" outer lens coatings.

It appears the standard Ultravid pricing you're comparing isn't the standard U-Vid, but the "BL" model, which has the leather outer shell and leather case.  Leica still offers this model in the non-HD version.  Even though it isn't depicted in the pics, they are described as having "black leather" in the product listing.
