Bushnell 10x42 vs Swift Eaglet 10x42

Postby deltacornbread on Sat May 08, 2010 10:57 am

Looking for a comparison between these two. 190.00 price difference. Is the Swift that much better in terms of optical quality and ease of use?
I am assumeing that both are equal in terms of being a good well built binocular designed to last many years.

You have to say which Bushnell.
Swift

Legend 10x42

Those Bushnells are a good price, I would go for them. Especieally with the wider field of view. I have them in 8x32.

Hi

If you are talking about the Bushnell Ultra Legend vs the Swift eaglet, I would rate them both as close, optically, though the Eaglet is definitely a better built bino and, overall, better quality. That Swift is made in Japan, that Bushnell is made in China - that also accounts for some of the difference in price.
