About Bushnell 8x42 Roof Prism

Designed for hunters by a company full of hunters, Bushnell's 8x42 Legend HD Binocular proves once again that Bushnell is never a company to sit upon their laurels. The Legends 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 been able to greatly increase the field of view with just a tiny decrease in eye relief and that extra field surrounds your peripheral vision within the binocular. The 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 8x42 model is a standard entry for enthusiastic birders and makes for a great all-around hunting and sporting unit. This roof prism design offers a streamlined shape for better handling for most average-to-smaller hand.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What is an objective cap?
JOHN R  An objective cap is the cover for the front the binocular lens tube. There are two supplied one for each tube. There are covers for the back of the lens tubes as well.
Shopper  Does the Bushnell rebate apply to this binocular?
RODNEY S  Yes, it is listed as a valid product for the rebate. Beware though, I submitted my rebate and they say I did not send my upc bar code with the form. I made sure i followed the instructions exactly, because I know how they are with these. If you make 1 mistake, they decline to pay the rebate. Now, they say I did not send the bar code and I can't do anything about it, because the box only had 1 upc on it and I will not be able to re-submit. My advice is to tape the upc barcode to the form to make sure they see it.
