Absolutely nothing wrong with the Bushnell Legend
porro. I have always been impressed with the value on this porro. Lot of binocular
for the dollar. As for the handling, that is something that you will just have to try before you judge, but I did not find the handling to be objectionable in any way when I held one. Really very typical porro.
As for Nikon
, you always get a lot of optical
performance for the dollar and that is one reason for Nikon
's position in the binocular
market. At the price of an AE, you don't get the quality control of Nikon
's higher end stuff, but, in my experience, at any given price point, Nikon
quality control tends to be very good and typically a cut above the rest at these lower price points.
That said, I don't think you will see much difference on these two as for performance, though the Nikon
may be a touch sharper at the edge of the field. Be hard to beat either one for value.
