Bushnell 198842 overview

  • 1Description

Bushnell's black 8x42 Legend L-Series Binocular lives up to the name by offering a full-feature optic designed for a long life on the trail while delivering enhanced optical performance. It employs extra low-dispersion (ED) glass to virtually eliminate chromatic aberration and color-fringing, and the entire optical system is anti-reflection fully multicoated with ultra-wide band coatings that produce bright and clear images with true color rendition across the entire visible spectrum without distortion, while enhancing the low-light performance. A wide 65° angle of view, combined with the imaging technologies, translates to an immersive observational experience with high-contrast images and accurate color transmission.

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 features black rubber armoring to protect the binocular 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 lens coatings beads water and oils from lenses for improved vision and image clarity in the rain, fog, or snow.

    Bushnell 198842 reviews

    8x42 Legend L-Series Binocular (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bushnell Legend L-Series 8 x 42 binoculars Living in the centre of Africa I was somewhat circumspect about ordering my next set of Binoculars on-line. Having previously owned a set of Bushnell's I thoroughly researched the vast array of competitor products before taking the leap and clicking on the buy button. I was pleasantly surprised with my experience! the tracking of my parcel worked well and it arrived a day early......very unusual for this part of the world. My Bushnell Legends L-Series 8 x 42 lived up to my expectations. I am an avid birder and the binos are Crystal clear and easy to use I now have a worthy replacement for my old set! Don't think twice..value for money al the way!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Legend continues! I'm going to use it to watch planes and birds. After a short field test, I didn't see any chromatic aberration, optics are clear and sharp. The compact design is unbeaten for this magnification. Like owner of Nikon Monarch 7 also, I can do a short comparison: better angle of view to Bushnell, more compact body, more close focus distance, magnesium alloy body vs. polycarbonate body of Nikon, no visible chromatic aberration vs. surprisingly strong chromatic aberration of Nikon...And the winner is...Bushnell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my binoculars! I mostly use my binoculars for bird watching from my kitchen nook. My feeders are too far to see without the binoculars. The 8 power brings the birds up close, but allows me to quickly find them and see a large area around them. These binoculars work well with glasses, but other people have used the adjustable eye piece for a perfect fit. The binoculars fit my hands comfortably and the center distance adjustment knob is quick and easy to use. They came with a very nice neck strap and carrying case that hooks to a belt which I will use when I take them hiking. B&H is a wonderful company. The product was delivered on time. I had a question and their chat people were courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binoculars! I bought these binoculars for a trip to view wildlife in Costa Rica. The binoculars can be adjusted to use them with or without glasses, which is great on days you are wearing sunglasses. The view is crystal clear and it is easy to focus on the animals and birds high up in the trees even when there isn't that much light in the tree canopy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good feel, easy focus, so far performs as advertised I bought these for game spotting on an African Safari. I anticipate they will be perfect for this application from testing them so far. Easy to focus, lightweight, and a good size. It appears to be difficult to attach anything but the supplied strap to the binoculars though as the attachment is very small.
