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.

Profoundly-wide field of view together with good 17mm 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
