Bushnell Legend E 10x42 Details

Whilst features like their fully multi-coated optics and good quality BaK-4 prism glass help to increase their window of operation, for best results, the 10x42 combination on these Legend E binoculars means they should ideally be deployed in wide open areas where and when light conditions are not too bad. For general outdoor lovers, wildlife observers, and hunters who usually explore the mountains, open grasslands or coastal regions and who need the extra detail you get at longer distances with a 10x power this is perfect. Those who operate at closer ranges in poor light, like forests or at sunset, may wish to consider the 8x42 version instead.
Whilst not long, the eye-relief on this model is good and they also have an excellent minimum focus distance ad they are tripod adaptable, should you need to completely eliminate image shake or keep your optics trained on a specific location over long periods.

Bushnell Legend E, L & M Binoculars

Consisting of a wide variety of roof prism models, the Legend series is actually divided up into a number of sub-ranges. This begins with the mid-level Legend E series which focuses on delivering a good performance but at a great price. Next, you get the mid-to-high level Legend M series that builds on the E Series by adding a number of important improvements that add to their overall optical performance and general usability. Finally, Bushnell has their very high-end Legend M Series binoculars that focus on delivering a very high performance with an equally high level of luxuriousness but not at any cost as they still keep half an eye on being good value for money.

Important Features

All Bushnell Legend binoculars feature a tough, yet lightweight magnesium chassis that is rubber coated, water and fog proof for maximum environmental protection. They are also all tripod adaptable, have a large centrally located focus wheel, twist-up eyecups, and right eye diopter that ensures they can be adjusted to meet your preferences. E and M series binoculars sport a single bridge design, whilst the M series is offered in an open bridge variation and the diopter adjuster is lockable.

Optical Properties

Incorporating environmentally friendly lead-free glass, all models within the Legend series have a fully multi-coated optical system using Bushnell’s own ultra wideband anti-reflection coatings. These are specifically designed to collect as much light and deliver the maximum amount right through the system to your eyes, resulting in improved colour reproduction right across the light spectrum as well as better image definition and brightness. 
Exterior lens surfaces are also treated with a water repelling material that not only ensures the best possible views in wet conditions but keeps them cleaner for longer and makes them easier and thus safer to clean when you eventually need to.
On all models, the BaK-4 roof prisms are treated with a phase correction material for improved image resolution. Legend M series binoculars also boast dielectric mirror coatings that boost the reflectivity of the prism to more than 99% for even better light transmission and thus even brighter, better quality views.
Both L & M series binoculars also integrate extra-low dispersion glass elements into their lenses. This ED glass further reduces certain chromatic aberrations and thus helps to minimize colour fringing in the final view.


Your Legend package is supplied with a soft, but protective carry case, objective lens covers, a rain-guard, padded neck strap and high-quality microfiber cleaning cloth.
