Does anyone have any experience wit the Leica Duovids?
My Steiner Binos got pinched and I'm looking to upgrade.
I will be using them in Iraq so I was wondering about  the
durability of the Duovids. I've been doing some looking
and at this point im scratching my head. Any advice would
be appreciated.
Thanks much

Don't see why they wouldn't hold up. They're on the heavy side though. Not the best bino to pack up and carry because of the weight factor.

How exactly do these work? For example on the 8-12x42 pair do you just get those two magnifications or could you set it halfway and get 10x too?

Minox sells the BD 10x-15x40mm BR Vario and it goes from 10x through 15x, so, unlike the Leica the Vario is adjustable through the entire range of 10x thru 15x.

Leupold is another company that sells "Dual" Power bianoculars.
The Golden Ring comes in either 7x/12x32mm or 10x/17x42mm at the flick of a switch.

You have to zoom into the 12 magnification from 8. It's not just a flip to the next power. So you will be able to use it on the powers in between. You just won't know what magnification you are on. Also since you have to adjust the magnification individually on each "barrel" it will be hard to set them on the exact same magnification. So yes and no to answer your question.

MY mistake. The instruction sheet gives these notes:

"Intermediate settings are possible, although identical magnification in both optical systems cannot be guaranteed in this case. Furthermore, the automatic diopter setting only applies in the two end positions. Incorrect settings can therefore quickly lead to a strain on the eyes and to fatigue".
