Now you can travel light without sacrificing true excellence in imagery. Our new Legend Ultra HD Monocular incorporates the features of our world-famous Legend Ultra HD binoculars into an ultra-streamlined platform that easily tucks in the pocket of a pack. Premium components like ED Prime glass, PC-3 Phase-Coated prisms and fully multi-coated optics deliver bright, clear views from edge to edge. Perhaps the finest monocular ever built, it can be handheld or mounted to a tripod for more stability. The built-in Picatinny rail accepts a wide range of accessories. Save space and sacrifice nothing!
Product is as advertised; good quality optics at a fair price. It was fully functional right out of the box.
The image stabilization is very good. The focal point is stable in your jittery hand. Better than I had expected, and very useful. Seems to be solidly made, and, for the price, a real bargain from a company that is known for quality opticals. I have a sense that these used to be cost much more, but out of production now, so the current"closeout" price of $99 is terrific for the IS technology.
clear optics and the 8 x 32 makes a good comprise for size and weight and easy usability (10 power hard to hold steady and 40mm is rather large 25mm is to small). the rubber armour is very grippy and the adj eye cup is far better than a flip up rubber for adj the eye relief distance. There are no caps for the lenses included but the front lens is recessed about 3/8" for some protection. The focus ring is plastic and flush with the body of the monocular and rather narrow (about 3/8") so it is a little hard to operate. I end up turning the body and holding the ring to adjust focus most of the time. It is nitrogen purged (this is not stated in the specifications but is stated in the directions included). Comes with a cleaning cloth, black nylon pouch for belt and storage, and a lanyard for neck. Mine did not have the lanyard (open box from amazon warehouse) but a quick call to bushnell and one is on the way.
Just what I was looking for. Robust & durable. My first and monocular. Simply needed something to allow me to see into the near distance. Relatively light and came with a case. The optics are clear and the focusing was simple. As a person who wears glasses I needed the di optic to be large enough and it was. Anyway, I'm quite satisfied (I haven't tested it out in the weather or on any trips yet).
This works great for an eyeglass wearer. I have a nice set of 8X30 Steiner binoculars Steiner 8x30 Military/Marine Binocular ,but to use them correctly I need to remove my glasses (fyi: these are apparently identical to the Amazon Model, which cost less Steiner AZ830 Binocular ). Ditto for my smaller pair of Steiners Steiner 2212 10x 26mm Safari UltraSharp Binocular, Black . To get a quick look at an archery target, or for a scan of the woods from my treestand, these Bushnells work great. Eight power enlargement, a large enough objective (32mm) to see in lower light, and good quality glass makes this bino a winner (for its limited uses). I'll get a couple more of these for Christmas gifts for the sons-in-law. . .
Light, portable, yet beautifully clear.
I don't know much about telescopes but I like this because it's so convenient and you get a great perspective on things when you use the scope - whether sightseeing or way finding. Quick to use, I like the form factor, it's not tiny, but it's comfy and easy to hold steady. It's got a rugged casing which I love, the eyepiece pops out, a wrist strap, a carry pouch with the Bushnell logo for your belt and if you are having trouble turning the lovely orange focus ring, may I recommend holding the focus ring while turning the body of the monoscope around to find focus. I'm happy with the value for money too.
I was apprehensive after seeing a poor review but knowing first had of Bushnell optics I took a gamble. It is perfect clear crisp and just what I wanted true the focus ring is stiff but 1 it’s new and 2 I’d rather it stiff then losse and losing focus.
Disgrace for bushnell name, Buy Araldite as well you will need it!
After doing a lot of research I finally decided on this one. I am very happy with my choice. You can hold it with your hand and have a clear non-jittery view. It is nice and compact. I wear glasses and it worked very well with them on. It's very basic to use. I believe the distance is what it says it is 8x32. Very clear view, nice no-slip grip, decent carrying case that has a belt loop, wrist lanyard and cleaning cloth.
Wanted a small optic to put in my BOB , binoculars take extra space for something you might not use too often. This is perfect, focus is stiff a bit but that's good cause you don't need it shifting. Good grip, really appreciate the wider angle of view. Many good reviews. I had a Bushnell when I was young. The case is better quality than most and it's padded with extra room you can add a lite foam, don't want to bang this. I would have liked 10 power but I won't complain they must have choosen this power for a reason. I'm very pleased. This arrived today with my new swisschamp, so you know I'm a happy 'urban' camper playing with my new toys. BTW the back eye cup adjusts in/out for glasses/no-glasses easier viewing.
Bad: This is a fine device but the reason for 4 star is the sticky focus ring. Even at room temperature it is an effort to focus. Luckily, the focus range from near to far is only about one quarter turn, which makes the stickiness not such a deal-breaker. I am not sure what it would be like outside in cold weather.
Excelente óptica, la claridad es impecable. La cantidad de luz que capta es y la amplitud del campo son sus puntos fuertes. La construcción es sólida y de alta calidad, compacto y perfecto para el campo. Para los que estén viendo productos similares, esta proporción de 8x32 es la elección más sabia, produce una experiencia de observación mucho mejor que los modelos de 10x25. Sólo el Celestron Outland de 6x30 es un buen competidor, de menor precio, más compacto, y con mayor amplitud de campo con menos magnificación.
The item arrived as described. As indicated in previous reviews, the orange field sight adjustment is a little tight. I bought this to see my shots on the pistol range and it works exactly as I expected!
Lenti discrete e abbastanza luminose, poco sensibile la regolazione di messa afuoco, ma considerato il prezzo può andare
A nifty thing to have when you're viewing nature and the moon(although you need a stand or something more stable).
Image clear, focus ring a little too stiff and not easy to adjust, but once adjusted you don't need to change.
Great product, I will get a second one for the girlfriend as we love going to the races & for bird watching.
I had to send it back as the lens only gave me a clear view of about 50 feet. Beyond that it was distorted. Perhaps it was just one bad out of the bunch. At least I got a refund.
Love it would buy again
It was decent enough , but not enough magnification for my needs. Returned it and purchased a stronger product.
