Reviews and Problems with Bushnell 10 x 42 Natureview
Showing 1-2 of 2
10x42 Birder Natureview Binoculars
9 February 2011
Excerpt: These binocs are very siimalr to the ones they replaced that cost 5x as much. The old ones got tossed because they were showing a double image after living in my backpack for 2 years or so. The Bushnells may or may not have the quality of optics that the more expensive units did but the Permafocus or infinite depth focus makes it so you just pick them up and look. If what you are looking at is further than about 75 away it will be clear.
Summary: While these are generally a good pair of binoculars, beware of the weight stated by most retailers, which is based on Bushnell's INCORRECT marketing specification. The Natureview 10 x 42 roof prism binoculars (221042) are shown as weighing 652g, on Amazon's website as well as many other Internet sites, but this information is WRONG. The Natureview 10 x 42 binoculars (221042) actually weigh around 730g, over 75g more than stated.
