Good optics, poor attention to details/build

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CO Written on December 10, 2013
While the optics are good, the exterior build and accessories are weak.
The lens caps are attached to the binoculars with a rubber band strength rubber ring. If you are using these binocs under rough conditions, it is only a matter of time before the rubber bands break and the caps may get lost. A binoc of this quality deserves better.
The plastic focus knob broke, allowing it to "free spin" around the actual metal knob within, making focusing difficult. Once again, a low quality part built upon high quality optics.
If you are not planning on using these in rough conditions, then I would recommend these without hesitation. Otherwise, there may be better options.
Pros: optical quality
Cons: sub standard accessories and exterior build...
Would recommend: Yes

bushnell legend

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on August 16, 2012
This is only my second pair of binos ever, and my previous set is a ten year old compact Pentax, so take my comments with that in mind.

I really like the clarity and brightness of these binos. They Are easy to hold steady and don't seem to cause much eye fatigue. I have been skeptical of Bushnell quality, but these look and feel very solid.

Two complaints: when I look at the edge of the field of view, I can see a noticeable drop off in the clarity. When I use the center of the FOV it isn't noticeable. Second, the eye cups don't stay where I put them. I like that they spin to adjust for eye relief, but they spin too easily so I often find myself readjusting them.
Pros: price, brightness, center view clarity
Cons: fringing on edges...
Would recommend: Yes
