Bushnell bought Bausch&Lomb back in the early 90's, but continued production of Bausch&Lomb binoculars, riflescopes and spotting scopes under the Bausch&Lomb name for years. Due to a recent change in holdings, however, the Bausch&Lomb name is now owned esclusively by Bausch&Lomb contacts and eyewear. All binoculars, riflescopes and spotting scopes formerly labeled Bausch&Lomb have now been relabeled Bushnell.
For the most part, these Bushnell versions are the same products, made in the same Japanese factory with the same specs as the former Bausch&Lomb version, but you'll get an argument to the contrary from diehard Bausch&Lomb fans and some of these people will pay more for the Bausch&Lomb labeled products if they can find them.
As long as you are comparing the same model of spotting scope, performance will likely be the same, but you need to be sure you are comparing apples to apples, so to speak. There have been many model and spec changes over the years.
