Bushnell Legend HD compared to Carson XM-HD

Postby Los on Thu May 21, 2009 7:21 pm

I am considering the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 8x42 and Carson XM-HD 8x42 for cold and rainy weather hunting use. They are in the same price range and I am sure both are excellent binos at this price point. In your opinion, which one has the edge in terms of clarity, brightness, colour rendition, handling, built quality, etc. Unfortunately the stores in my area do not carry Carson so I am unable to compare by try it out. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry, have not had a chance to test the new Legend, but, you are right, both good choices, at least if the new Legend is anywhere close to the old Legend. Soon as I can, will post a review on the Legend HD

Thank you for your prompt response, Joanie. You spoke highly of the Carson XM-HD and you used it as a reference bino in one of your posts comparing similarly priced binos. I look forward to reading your review of the Legend HD.
