Bushnell 197842 overview

  • 1Description

Bushnell's 8x42 Legend E-Series Binocular lives up to the name by offering a full-feature optic designed for a rugged life on the trail. Its 42mm objectives provide competent light-gathering capabilities for use from dawn to dusk while a compact BAK4 roof prism optical path maintains a low profile without sacrificing performance. The entire optical system is anti-reflection fully multicoated with ultra-wide band coatings that create bright and clear images with true color rendition across the entire visible spectrum. Rounding out the performance is a wide-angle 65° angle of view that translates to an immersive 426' field of view at 1000 yards.

Complementing the performance is a housing that is designed to withstand the rigors of a life lived outdoors. The chassis is made of a lightweight and corrosion-resistant magnesium alloy that is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be fog and waterproof. The exterior is rubber-armored to protect against drops and impacts with textured slip-resistant grip. A large knurled center focus wheel enables easy use even with gloves, and the diopter locks in place and prevents accidental adjustment allowing for faster focusing. When the weather turns, Bushnell's proprietary RainGuard HD water-repellent coatings beads water and oils from lenses for improved vision and image clarity in the rain, fog, or snow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics with rainguard I recommend these binoculars if you ever hunt in the rain. I hunt in both wet and cold conditions a great deal. With clear, sharp optics and the addition of a rainguard coating of the lenses is the reason I purchased these bushnell binoculars. Water, fog or snow just beads up and rolls off. I would definitely buy again. The prices were low and the service was high.
