Hi

Haven't seen the new Legend HD yet, so can't comment, but the HD feature makes it POTENTIALLY the best choice in optics, given that the standard Legend compared favorably to the other two. On the Infinity you are paying extra for the open bridge design. I do not rate it any better than the Monarch.

Lastly, keep in mind that there is never a best at any given price point in this very competitve market. I have yet to test any bino that scores the best in all optical and mechanical categories. More importantly, you must also factor in subjective factors as to handling, brand preference and so on.
