Bushnell Legend Binocular Line L-Series
A look at the L-Series in Bushnell's Legend line.

Bushnell has been creating high performance sports optics for more than 65 years. So when the company releases a new optic, it’s worth giving it a look — it’s only going to help your shooting.

New for 2015, Bushnell has introduced a new, redesigned Legend binocular line.

With Ultra Wide Band lens coatings, Legend binoculars provide excellent light transmission and clarity for dusk-to-dawn performance. They use environmentally friendly lead-free glass with the patented RainGuard HD coating. This permanent, water-resistant finish causes moisture to bead up and scatter less light, allowing the binoculars to perform even in inclement weather.

Three models make up the product line for 2015: the E-Series, L-Series and M-Series. All three models are available in 8×42 or 10×42 configurations and feature a chassis constructed of strong, lightweight magnesium.

They have fully multi-coated optics with Ultra Wide Band Coating that is customized for every lens to allow maximum brightness and truer color across the light spectrum. All three models feature increased eyecup resistance and are 100 percent waterproof and fogproof.

The E-Series binoculars are available in 8×42 with a wide field of view of 426 feet at 1,000 yards or 10×42 with a field of view of 340 feet at 1,000 yards. The binoculars come with premium objective covers to protect the lenses from dirt and dust and fine-click diopter adjustment.

The Legend L-Series binoculars feature an additional locking eyepiece diopter and ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Prime Glass. Also available in 8×42 and 10×42 configurations, the Legend L series is available in black and, in the 10x configuration, Realtree Xtra camouflage.

The top of the line Legend M-Series binoculars have all the features of the other Legends, plus a dielectric coating on the prisms to assure high color reproduction. This coating reflects more than 99 percent of incoming light to allow for maximum light output at dusk and dawn. They come with custom objective covers to protect the lenses from dust, dirt and other abrasives, and feature a weight-saving, ergonomic open bridge design for less fatigue during long glassing sessions.
