Bushnell Legend L Series 8x42 ED Binoculars

The Bushnell Legend L series represent Bushnell's top of the line binoculars. An improvement over the previous Legend binoculars, this pair boasts ED glass to ensure chromatic aberration free images. As well, with Bushnell's RainGuard HD coatings, these binoculars deliver the brightest possible image while repelling water from the objectives.

The Bushnell Legend L series binoculars set a new price point for binoculars containing exotic ED extra-low dispersion glass optics. ED prime glass reduces chromatic aberration (false color) which is inherent in fast optical systems such as binoculars. The results are a dramatic reduction in chromatic halos around birds, tree branches, sailboats, etc.

Bushnell Legend L series binoculars also feature wide-band lens coatings to maximize light transmission through each lens. The result is a brighter image with higher contrast. Bushnell's patented RainGuardHD lens coatings repel water, to maintain a clear view, even in the rain.

A magnesium chassis keeps the weight down while maintaining durability. This makes the pair portable without sacrificing performance.
