  • Description

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend L Series Binoculars feature a multitude of high end features, including ED Prime Extra-Low Dispersion fluorite glass optics.  ED glass increases the quality of your observations by delivering amazing color resolution and contrast, and virtually eliminating chromatic aberration and color-fringing that can distract you from an otherwise perfect view.  The use of extra low dispersion optics in the Legend L Series will bring out the most distinct details possible, and will be most appreciated during challenging low-light conditions. 

    ED optics with Bushnell's proprietary Ultra Wide Band coatings

    To assure astounding brightness, true colors and sharp views, all air-to-glass optical surfaces feature multiple layers of Bushnell's Ultra Wide Band, anti-reflective coatings. The fully multi-coated, ED fluorite glass optical system of the Bushnell Legend L Series binoculars delivers the brightest, highest contrast images with the least amount of eye strain, because only a very small percentage of light is lost before it reaches the viewer's eye.  

    In addition, the high quality BaK-4 prism used in this pair of Legend L binoculars is PC-3 Phase Coated to enhance resolution and contrast even further.

    Tough yet lightweight magnesium housing

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend L Series Binoculars have a lightweight magnesium chassis in a contemporary and extra durable roof prism design.  A rubber armor coating envelopes the metal chassis, providing protection and a comfortable interface.  A textured grip is designed into the rubber armor so that your hands will stay put, even when wet or cold.  The ergonomically placed, over-sized focus knob is deeply ridged to make focusing an easy and precise exercise. 

    You'll be singin' in the rain!

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend L binoculars are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged for total waterproof and fogproof protection. Legend L Series models can withstand complete immersion in water and stay dry inside, plus, interior optical surfaces won’t fog due to rapid temperature change or humidity.

    RainGuardHD – Bushnell’s patented permanent water-repellant coating—is used on all Legend L-Series binoculars. Not only does RainGuardHD provide excellent waterproof protection for your binoculars, it also causes any water that does land on the glass to bead up. This beading action keeps water from laying in a sheet on your optics and causing a decrease in contrast and sharpness.  There are a lot of waterproof binoculars on the market, but Bushnell's RainGuardHD is truly unique.

    Twist up eyecups are fast and easy to adjust

    The twist up eyecups of the Bushnell Legend L binoculars are a cinch to adjust.  Set them at the height that is best for your eyes, and that allows you to see the widest field of view.  The 8x42 Legend L Binoculars have a very comfortable 19mm of eye relief.  This means even those who wear glasses should be able to find a comfortable setting, most likely with the eyecup height set as low as possible.  An adjustable diopter setting on one eyecup also lets you make adjustments for differences in vision for your left vs right eye.

    Close focus to 6.5 feet

    The Bushnell 8x42 Legend L Binoculars allow you to observe objects as close as 6.5 feet.  If you've ever tried to focus on a bird or animal that was kind enough to come really close, and couldn't achieve a sharp image, you'll know how important close focus is!  This feature also allows you to use your binoculars to inspect small objects that you can't or shouldn't get close to, like insects, reptiles, or even signs that are too far away to read!
