Incredible glasses at a reasonable price - 06/08/2010

by Nancy Pitt from Chicago

I actually bought a pair of 10x42s because the 8's were not available. The field of view (340 ft) is amazing for a 10X glass, almost as wide as my old 8's and the images are crystal clear, edge to edge. As impressed as I was watching the boats on Lake Michigan last weekend, what really knocked my socks off was how bright they were, long after daylight made it hard to see. The low light transmission is something special. I had read several articles about Bushnell's Rainguard coating that is supposed to keep external lens surfaces from fogging and we got a first-hand example of how it works. A spot shower, forced us to go inside the airconditioned Shedd Aquarium for a half hour while the storm passed. When we went back outside the sun had come back out and the humidity skyrocketed. When my friend put her glasses (monarchs) up to look at a sailboat, she discovered that all she could see was NOTHING; both front and back lenses were totally fogged over - my Legend's were crystal clear. Rainguard does work! There are a couple little things that I think are really cool. One is the soft padded area where your thumbs rest while using them and the other is the very nice padded/back vented, bino harness that comes with them. Lastly, while Bushnell extends an incredible offer of a full money back refund if I was anything but satisfied with my Legends, I don't think they will ever have to worry about seeing my pair coming back to them. They are the best I have ever owned.

Slight eye relief problem - 04/25/2010

by Esa Jarvi from Missouri

See my review for the 10x42 model. Everything there holds here too. The field of view is magnificent, and sharp almost to the edge. However, these have so much eye relief that I had to find a way to hold them further away from the eyes. They work well when looking with glasses on, as that holds them away as well.

Still, I am using these pretty much all the time in May for warblers, as they are brighter than my 8x32 models.
