Review of the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10x42mm Binoculars

 | John White

While the likes of Swarovski have been catering for the high end, premium sector, it has been difficult to find a reasonably priced high quality pair of binoculars. That search is thankfully over so it is time to put your old pair of binos to rest!

Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10x42mm


I was looking for a pair of all round game viewing and bird watching binoculars. After a lot of research into the latest models I purchased the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10x42mm binoculars and have never looked back! They are approximately a sixth of the price of a pair of Swarovski 10x42 binoculars and although the quality is not that of Swarovski’s, the difference makes it difficult to justify the price, especially if you are on a budget...

These binoculars have won the coveted 2013 Binocular of the Year by and are widely regarded as great value for money in the vast majority of reviews I have read. If you are looking for a high quality, value for money pair of binoculars, you cannot go wrong with these!
