Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10x42
7 July 2014
Conclusion: The predecessor of the Legend Ultra HD model, the Bushnell Legend 10x42, was tested by us during our big test of 10x42 devices. It got a very good result – over 130 points. Still the producer decided to launch a successor, with a lower physical weight and a wider field of view, with better coatings and low dispersion ED glass elements. The influence of those changes is easy to spot.
Pros: good build quality of the casing,, well-corrected chromatic aberration,, slight astigmatism,, moderate coma,, wide field of view,, relatively circular exit pupils,, good quality BaK-4 prisms,, long warranty period.
Cons: weak image resolution on the edge of the field of view.
Summary: Waterproof and fog-proof, they appear to be decently built, but there have been a number of complaints of pieces coming off or breaking, and of the binoculars sometimes arriving this way in their packaging. The good news is that they come with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value, Perform well in low light
Excerpt: The 10x42 Ultra HD Tactical Monocular is awesome. Used in light snow in a 4 hours mountain desert hike the day after receiving it - it is an excellent field tool. Easy to use with one hand, great clarity and field of vision. The light snow had no effect on vision.
Pros: Compact Field Tool, Ease of Use, Great Low Light Clarity
Excerpt: I would like to share a little bit about my background before the review. I started in astronomy as a young kid with a small refractor on a wobbly mount. I left the hobby for many years and returned to it in 1999. By 2002 I became serious about astronomy and have been helplessly addicted ever since.
Excerpt: take you 5 minutes to find these and most other binos/scopes literally half price from a myriad online vendors in the states. i've found service and quality excellent when purchasing in such a manner. Don't get screwed by the local importers.
