Designed for hunters by a company full of hunters, Bushnell's 10x42 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 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 10x42 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.

Profoundly-wide 6.5° field of view for a 10x unit, together with 15mm of eye relief
"ED Prime Glass" extra-low dispersion objective lens elements focus light from red, green, and blue color spectrums to a tighter point for minimized color aberration
"Ultra WB Coating" broadband anti-reflective coatings throughout binocular aim to increase transmission values across full 380-750nm visible color spectrum
Rainguard HD external oil-and-water-repellent lens coatings minimize condensation droplet size, prevent fogging from your own breath, and ease cleaning regimen
PC-3 phase-coated BaK-4 roof prisms
Hybrid magnesium chassis significantly reduces weight
Newly-designed ridged rubber armoring with a particularly soft touch
Ridged, twist-up eyecups
Large, knobby center focus dial is easy to grab even while wearing gloves

    These are GREAT binoculars. I've used many and owned a few, but with this purchase, I wanted to invest in my last, "forever" binoculars. These are it.

    SUMMARY:

    I enthusiastically recommend these binoculars. I find them to be very high quality overall, their optic performance terrific, their price-to-performance ratio very good, and their accessories high quality and useful.

    DETAIL:

    These binos are everything I wanted in a high-quality optic. The visual through them is essentially perfect -- bright, razor-sharp, rich and true color. (There is very minor distortion at the extreme peripheral, but you have to actively look for it to see it.) Overall, the view through them is crisp and gorgeous. They are truly a pleasure to use.

    These are the first binos I've used that have a right eye diopter that LOCKS, and what a TERRIFIC feature that is! With other binos, so many times when I take them from my eyes, the diopter ring gets bumped somehow and I have to re-adjust it again and again and again -- very frustrating. With these, you pop up the ring, set it, pop down the ring and you're done . . . forever. I love that!

    Other appreciated features include twist-up eye cups that stay put; good 15 mm eye relief; and minimum focus distance of about 6 feet.

    Given their full-size, high performance category, these binos are (1) surprisingly compact and easy to manipulate; and (2) of a reasonable weight (they're not "light", but how could they be?). I find their construction to be top-notch and very solid -- I have high confidence in them.

    The suite of accessories included with them is a surprisingly good bonus. The carry case is high quality (though its shoulder strap, while perfectly serviceable, is basic and unpadded). It's a clam shell design that unzips fully allowing it to be opened 180 degress and laid out flat, with a molded section for the binos on one side and mesh netting on the other to hold the accessories. It has internal hook-&-loop elasticized fastener tabs you can optionally use that restrict how far the case will open (roughly 45 degrees) so that when you open it while it's hanging from your shoulder, the contents won't spill out. A small thing, but helpful, thoughtful, and smart.

    The neck strap for the binos themselves is high quality and comfortable -- padded and made of springy neoprene. Also included is Bushnell's deluxe binocular harness (that puts the weight on your shoulders rather than your neck). It's very good, and makes longer-term usage more secure and much more comfortable.

    The package includes not only a microfiber cleaning cloth, but a microfiber drawstring bag as well (kind of an optional case within a case). Top and bottom lens caps are of course included.

    PRICE: Undoubtedly, there are even better binos out there, but how much better and for how much more? I see the ultra-premium brands for double, triple, even quadruple the price and find it extremely difficult to believe they'd be worth that. For my needs and tax bracket, the price-to-performance ratio of these binos is spot-on. As usual, B&H had the best price I could find (AND they're a reputable, high-quality vendor!).

    I loved the included carrying harness. I like the Locking diopter ring. The center focus dial ONLY needs a slight adjustment to bring objects into (or out of) focus. These will gather enough light to make out objects up to 30 mins after sunset. I feel that these bino are an excellent value, however I would spend the extra dollars and get the Nikon Monarch ATB. I wished I had been able to compare them side by side before I had made the purchase.

    Unbelievably great!

    Comments about 10x42 Legend Ultra HD Binocular (Black):

    I had been casually looking at 10x binos for awhile now, and every time deciding I didn't want to spend the minimum $600 it looked like it was going to take to get a pair that were of the optical quality I wanted. Then I found these by Bushnell. The reviews had been great, the price was really low, and I decided to give them a try.
    They are made really well, have a terrific feel in your hand, the image is sharp with great color, just a lot of binocular for the price. Yeah, I know there are other brands like Swarovski which blow these away, but at that price point, they should. These are great for my needs.
    There is one thing which wasn't intuitive-the adjustment for the diopter correction. The ring is in the same place as it is on most binoculars, but it locks! Until you unlock it by sliding it up, it doesn't rotate! That is explained in the manual, but I didn't look at it until a week later.
    Unless you need and want to spend 3-6x what these cost, you can't go wrong with this binocular.

      I bought these binoculars for my husband as his Christmas present and they could not have had a better re-action. We live in rural New Zealand and he is using them for hunting, bird and animal recognition and on the farm. They are the perfect companion. Also they were a lot cheaper than buying locally. We had no trouble at all, they arrived much quicker than I thought they would and we had no extra expences.

            I bought these as an update to a pair of 25yr. old Bushnell zooms. They are smaller, lighter and much brighter than my oldies. I'm not an authority on binoculars but my first impression was that the build quality was good and the imagery was crisp and bright. I have tried a friend's pair of Swarovskis that cost $+ and yes they are smoother and more finely built compared to these Bushnells. But with the $ rebate that brought the price of these down to $, these Bushnells are dollar for dollar the best value out there. I am satifsfied with my purchase...a solid 4 star item.

                      Great pair of binoculars for the money especially withe the $ rebate that bushnell is offering on these binoculars. I just got through with my deer hunt and found them very effective in low morning light because of the HD and looking into the early morning sun. The only thing I have a complaint about is the lens caps being to lose and could be lost if not careful.

                      Comments about 10x42 Legend Ultra HD Binocular (Black):

                      I bought these as a lower cost alternative to my Leica Ultravid (10x32). I was recently on vacation and forgot my binocs, so I went looking for something cheap locally. The ones I tested were woefully bad until I got to a range I wasn't willing to spend for what was offered. I decided to do a little research online. I was shocked to see these had a rebate available, which crushed the value test. I was very impressed with the Bushnell Legend HD's when I bought a pair for my daughter earlier in the year, so I knew what I was getting. They are fine for night sky as well as spectator sports or nature viewing. Especially for night viewing, you need a wider aperture to make sure the image is bright enough. These are rugged and have good sharpness fairly far from center. They are a little stiff, but I have binocs that are so easy to skew that I'm always readjusting them, so this is a bit of a plus for me. I don't wear glasses, but I've tried them with sunglasses - I've heard these are comparatively decent for eye relief, but I don't know how to judge that. All I know is, I'd always rather not use binocs with glasses no matter how good the eye relief is.If I didn't have the more exotic pairs already, I wouldn't mind paying the regular price (sans rebate) and using these as a "goto" pair since they are so versatile (bright, relatively compact vs BAK types, great magnification at 10x), rugged (waterproof, solid construction), with good optics (glass/coatings & relatively sharp). The quality lends confidence that these can take some punishment and provide a good image in a wide range of uses.One last note - I've bought from B&H in the past, and their service is great! If they have it in stock, they put it on the truck ASAP and don't play games with upgraded shipping (ie: make you wait a week before they ship it).Stars based on value / $$$.

                          This purchase was definitely a NO BRAINER! Since I already have a pair of the older Legend Binoculars and absolutely Love them I couldn't pass up the low cost at B&H, plus a $ rebate for these GREAT Binoculars. These Binos are crystal clear, gather light extremely well at dawn and dusk and are quality built by Bushnell. Bushnell also offers a 100% buy back guarantee if you aren't completely satisfied.

                          I really thought I was set on the Leupold BX-2 Acadia binoculars. I plan to use these for hunting and some sports events. I read a ton of reviews and I wanted a 10-12 power set for under $. The $ rebate from Bushnell really pushed me over to these along with all the positive reviews. These are great and VERY clear. They came with a case (heavy cloth), microfiber bag, and neoprene neck strap (not a harness). I'm not crazy about the front caps, they have a band that just wraps around the objective end and they tend to slide off. The eyepiece cover has a loop for the neck strap to go through and it's a one-piece unit so you won't lose that one. They are a bit heavy but feel very well constructed.

                          I always research my larger purchases like this, and so glad I did. I looked at 5 other camo binoculars as these are for hunting, and there was no comparison through my eyes. The bushnells were far more clear at all distances, and far more comfortable.......plus I got by far the best price I could find through BHPhoto. Awesome product, Awesome service!
