The Bushnell 10 x 42 mm Legend Ultra HD Binocular have long been regarded as a great hunter or birder's value and the 2009 updates offer serious advantages over the prior generations. Bushnell has increased the field of view with just a tiny decrease in eye relief and that extra field surrounds your peripheral vision within the binocular.
The Legend HD Ultra's objective lenses now feature extra-low dispersion glass, which aims to eliminate chromatic aberration. Other improvements include a facelift to the housing armor, magnesium construction to shave precious amounts of weight and new anti-reflective internal lens coatings to maximize overall color rendition.
The 10 x 42 model provides increased magnification and subject size in a standard weight for enthusiastic birders, making for a great all-around hunting and sporting unit for those that prefer the bolder view from a 10x optic (which always presents a less stable image than an 8x unit). This roof prism design offers a streamlined shape for better handling for most average-to-smaller hand.
