Leupold BX-3 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring extra-low dispersion glass, their proprietary Xtended Twilight (XT) Lens System, and phase corrected BAK4 prisms, Leupold's gray 8x42 BX-3 Mojave Pro Guide HD Binocular delivers images with breath-taking color, clarity, and contrast. The lenses are made of lead-free high-transmittance calcium fluoride glass, which by their nature, limit reflection and increase color fidelity and contrast. The XT system complements the glass through the use of index-matched lens coatings that were specifically engineered for the calcium-fluoride lenses to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum — with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low-light, such as at dawn and dusk and under heavily-canopied forests.

Designed for a life lived outdoors the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them water and fogproof, even when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion-resistant. To further cut weight, and to give users more gripping area, Leupold employs an open bridge configuration with a dual-hinge. Its oversized and knurled center focusing wheel allows for sharp focusing even while wearing gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luepold 8x42 bx-3 mojave pro guide hd Great binos amazing clarity. I chose these over the vortex viper's. because they are more compact and feel better in my hands. well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good glasses I use these canoe camping and hiking for general viewing. They fit my hands well (I have large hands), the focus is smooth and fine, the diopter adjustment works well, I like the pop-up eye relief for users with and without glasses. Light gathering is good - these were a splurge for me, but very satisfactory. Great glasses. Good strap and satisfactory case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the buck binos Comparing my 8X42 BX-3's to my Zeiss Victory T* flouride 10X32 I find them to be almost as sharp in the center but edge sharpness isn't as good as the Zeiss. Contrast is also very good but not quite there. Eye relief is about the same. Meaning you can see the whole field with glasses. Colors are true but not quite up to the Zeiss. Brightness in low light levels is about the same as the Zeiss even though the Zeiss is 32mm and the BX3 is 42mm. Shows you how well the Zeiss optics transmit light. Mechanically the focus is not butter smooth like the Zeiss and stiffens in the cold, not so with the Zeiss. Fit and finish is good but nowhere near the Zeiss. Summimg up, these are great binos for the money. Most will find them excellent. The Zeiss however are on another level. Yes they are expensive, but if you're into optics like me the view through the Zeiss Victory T* flouride series is something special and to me worth every cent.
