The Legend HD 8x36 from Bushnell is a high-performance mid-sized roof prism binocular with outstanding optics. Its lightweight yet rugged magnesium chassis affords this fine optic a trim profile, while ensuring years of dependable use.
This Legend HD is configured with fully multicoated extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses for optimum optical performance. These fluoride ED glass lenses offer an outstanding level of wide angle viewing performance - they provide amazing color rendition, enhanced resolution, and vivid contrast while virtually eliminating chromatic aberration and color-fringing. The resulting views reveal distinct details that viewers with garden-variety binoculars would miss out on.
Each lens is custom-coated with Bushnell's proprietary ultra wide band A/R coating system to maximize light transmission across the entire visible spectrum (380-750 nm). This anti-reflective coating process optimizes each lens' brightness and contrast levels, while allowing colors to be rendered accurately. Finally, the exterior lens surfaces are treated with a water repellent Rainguard HD coating to minimize light dispersion from haze, mist, fog, and rain.
This Legend HD sports a rugged yet lightweight waterproof housing with a magnesium chassis. The interior is nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for reliable all-weather service, and the exterior is coated with rubber armoring with comfortable soft touch grip accents for secure no-slip handling in any climate.
