The Bushnell 8x42 Legend M Series Binoculars are perfect for birders! They offer up super bright, true color images thanks to the ED Prime Extra-Low Dispersion fluorite glass optics and prisms that have been dielectric coated for 92% light transmission. The lightweight magnesium, rubber coated chassis of the M-Series offers a double hinged open bridge design for a more secure grip.
ED fluorite fully multi-coated optics and dielectric coated prisms
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 M Series will bring out the most distinct details possible, and will be most appreciated during challenging low-light conditions.
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 M 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 M binoculars sports a dielectric coating with a reflectance that exceeds 99%. By utilizing light interference, this coating assures high reflectivity across the full visible range, and ensures high color reproducibility allowing 92% light transmission.
Get a grip! Open bridge design lets you grab with one hand
These amazing binoculars sport 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. Enhancing your gripping capabilities is the double hinged, open bridge design, which allows you to wrap your fingers around the objective barrels. The ergonomically placed, over-sized focus knob is deeply ridged to make focusing an easy and precise exercise.
Great close focus capabilities
The Bushnell 8x42 Legend M 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!
Waterproof with RainGuard HD
The Bushnell 8x42 Legend M binoculars are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged for total waterproof and fogproof protection. Legend M 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 M-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 with a locking diopter
The twist up eyecups of the Bushnell Legend M 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 M Binoculars have a very comfortable 18mm 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 locking diopter below the right eyecup accommodates for differences in vision for your left vs right eye.
