New Technology Provides High Definition Performance In Legend Ultra·HD Binocular.
Overland Park, KS — Hunters and outdoorsmen have always valued the Legend series of binoculars from Bushnell for their ruggedness, performance and value. For 2009, Bushnell introduces a new design on the outside and the latest technology on the inside. The New Legend Ultra·HD combines high quality optics and premium ED Prime Glass with the new Ultra Wide Custom Coating lens technology to provide the ultimate in high definition performance in two new roof prism models — the Legend Ultra·HD 8x42mm and 10x42mm. The new anti-reflective Ultra Wide Custom Coating delivers the best available light during the peak of the day but also at dusk and dawn when optics matter most. Premium ED (Extra Low Dispersion) glass delivers optimal color performance and edge-to-edge sharpness.
Compared to similarly price optics, the Legend Ultra·HD binoculars deliver a wider field of view (12 percent more than standard 10x binoculars). They are also more comfortable to use. Longer eye relief means less eye strain. The new Legend Ultra·HD binoculars are built on a lightweight, durable magnesium chassis. As a bonus they come with a Deluxe binocular harness with pre-attached neckstrap lugs that distributes the weight of the binoculars more evenly across your back.
The Legend Ultra·HD binoculars provide all weather performance with their 100 percent waterproof construction and new RainGuard HD high-density permanent coating scatters less light by minimizing or eliminating moisture on the lens surface.
Both models are available in black and the 10x42 model is also available in Realtree AP Camo. They come complete with a premium carrying case, neck strap and custom binocular harness. Suggested retail prices are: 8x42 - $289.95 and 10x42 - $299.95. They are available at Bushnell dealers nationwide.
