Bushnell Legend 8x42

Bushnell Legend 8x42

From Bushnell come two new top-of-the-line binoculars: the Legend 8x42, which, when tested, compared favorably with binoculars costing much more, and a Legend 10x42 of similar size, weight and quality. When peering deep into the 8x42's objective lens at a reflection of an overhead light, I could detect nothing but multi-layer, anti-reflection coatings on the various lenses, which goes a long way toward explaining this binocular's bright, crisp rendering of twilight conditions. The Legend's rugged, rubber-armored body is O-ring-sealed and nitrogen-purged for waterproof, fogproof protection.
