Bushnell 199842 overview

  • 1Description

Bushnell's 8x42 Legend M-Series Binocular lives up to the name by offering a full-feature observation tool 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. The BAK4 roof prisms are dielectric coated to minimize light loss while enhancing color, contrast and overall image brightness - further improving its low-light performance. A wide 65° angle of view, combined with the image-enhancing 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 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 199842 reviews

    8x42 Legend M-Series Binocular is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from reat for the price, but stiff/ focus wheel is a deal-breaker For the price these are a very nice pair of binoculars. The build feels solid and the new, revised Bushnell No-Fault warranty is very good. The optics are not quite as sharp as my Vortex Viper HD and Razor HD, but then again they cost between 2 and 4 times as much as the Legend M. I would have considered this binocular a keeper if not for the focus wheel. The focus wheel on the copy that I received is VERY stiff and makes a gritty noise when turned. Maybe I just got unlucky and received one with a bad focusing wheel, but I will not be keeping the copy that I received due to how difficult it is to focus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of bino's Very good optics for the price. Very bright and sharp. The eye-cups are very solid to click in and out. BUT, the focus wheel is really stiff and not smooth at all. It takes the backseat to my Carl Zeiss Conquest HD (fantastic focus wheel). But for the price I can not think of a better alternative.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat these at this price point I mainly use these for birding, and hiking. The view is crystal clear. I can easily use these with my glasses on, something I have not been able to do with other binoculars i have owned. Although a little more weighty than I would have liked, I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased! I've found the M-Series to be sharp, bright, and smoothly functional.� �As an entomologist and bird enthusiast, I find the close-up focus very useful.� Focus is silky smooth. Good investment!
