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.
