See what this new Legend is made of.

The new generation of Bushnell’s Legend binoculars has been redesigned with even higher-performanceoptics and a lighter, tougher bodydesign-nowonder we call them “Ultra•HD.” For the ultimate in detailed resolution and color fidelity, they’re engineered with high density ED Prime Glass. Therazor-sharpoptics are fully multicoatedin fact, each lens is individually custom treated with our new Ultra Wide Band Coating that optimizes brightness and contrast. New Rainguard® HD forces moisture to “bead up” tighter than ever, and even boosts light transmission while ensuring foul weather or your own breath will never cost you a view. We cut the weight by adding a magnesium chassis. Withclass-leadingfield of view andextra-longeye relief, the latest chapter of the Legend covers more country with less effort than ever before.

ED Prime Glass. ED PrimeExtra-LowDispersion fluorite glass delivers amazing color resolution and contrast, and virtually eliminates chromatic aberration andcolor-fringingto bring out the most distinct details possible inlow-lightconditions.

Ultra Wide Band Coating. An antireflection coating process that is customized for every lens element in the optical path, in order to allow the best possible light from the front glass all the way back to the eyepiece. The result? Optimum brightness and true color across the light spectrum.

Rainguard® HD. This patented*, permanent,water-repellentcoating causes moisture from rain, snow, sleet or condensation to bead up and scatter less light, so you get a clear, bright view when other optics would be rendered useless.

Thank you for purchasing your new Bushnell Legend Ultra HD™ Binoculars.

This manual will help you optimize your viewing experience by explaining how you can adjust the binocular to your eyes, and how to care for this instrument. Read the instructions carefully before using your binocular.



How to Adjust for Distance Between Your Eyes


The distance between the eyes, called “interpupillary distance,”


varies from person to person.


To achieve perfect alignment of lens to eyes, follow these simple




1. Hold your binocular in the normal viewing position.


2. Grasp each barrel firmly. Move the barrels closer


together or further apart (Fig. 1) until you see a single


circular field. Always re-setyour binocular to this


position before using it.


How to Adjust for Individual Eye Strength


As individual eyesight varies from one person to another, your


Bushnell Legend Ultra HD binocular has a diopter setting


feature which allows you to fine-tunethe binocular to your

Fig. 1-Interpupillary

vision. Follow the focusing instructions on the next page.

Distance Adjustment



1.Adjust the interpupillary distance (Fig. 1) until you see a single circular image.

2.The diopter adjustment ring is located directly below the right eyecup. Make sure the diopter adjustment is set to “zero” (small vertical mark on diopter ring is lined up with vertical index mark on right side of binocular). (Fig. 2) Keep both eyes open at all times.

3.Using the attached lens cap or your hand, cover the objective (front) lens on the right side of the binocular as you look into the eyepieces.

4.Using the center focus knob (Fig. 3), focus on a distant object with fine detail (e.g., brick wall, tree branches, etc) until it appears as sharp as possible on the left side.

5.Uncover the objective lens on the right side, and cover the left objective lens while continuing to view the same object.

6.Rotate the diopter adjustment ring to bring the object into focus in the right side of the binocular. Avoid over-turningor forcing the diopter mechanism. If you are unable to bring the object into focus in the right side by adjusting the diopter ring, make sure the left side is still focused and that the center focus knob was not moved from its original setting. The diopter adjustment only affects the right side.

7.Your binocular should now be adjusted for your eyes. Focusing for any distance can now be done simply by turning the center focus knob. Make a note of the diopter setting you made (which small mark on the

diopter ring scale is opposite the vertical index mark on the binocular) for future reference.


Your Bushnell Legend Ultra HD binocular is fitted with twistup eyecups designed for your comfort and to exclude extraneous light. For users without eyeglasses, twist the eyecups up, rotating the eyecups counter-clockwiseuntil they lock into the fully “up” position (Fig. 4). If you wear glasses, make sure the eyecups are in the down positionthis will bring your eyes closer to the binocular lens, allowing you to see the full field of view. To lower the eyecups from the full “up” position, rotate them clockwise (Fig. 5). The eyecups may also be left at positions “in between” fully up and fully down, which may suit some individuals better.

To attach the neckstrap:

1.Thread the narrow black section on one end of the strap through the small lug on one side of the binocular (below the eyepiece).

2.Loop the black part of the strap back into the plastic strap buckle, threading it through the lower part of the buckle (loosen and push the strap that’s already going through the top part of the buckle out of the way first, to make this easier to do).

3.Repeat this process for the other side of the strap and binocular.

4.Adjust the length of the strap so the binocular hangs around your neck in a comfortable position (you may need to loosen the strap slightly first, so it pulls easily through the plastic strap buckles-beingcareful that the binocular remains supported so it cannot fall to the floor). Any excess length of black strap that sticks out after making your final adjustments can then be secured in place by sliding the small plastic sleeves over it.

5.Be sure to check that the strap is securely fastened by tugging on the binocular (keep a grip on it) while wearing the strap around your neck before you start using your binoculars for the first time.

Your Bushnell Legend Ultra HD binocular has been designed and built utilizing the latest waterproof and fogproof technology. The binoculars are O-ringsealed for complete moisture protection. Fogproof protection is achieved from dry nitrogen purging that removes all internal moisture.


Your Bushnell Legend Ultra HD binocular will provide years of trouble-freeservice if it receives the normal care you would give any fine optical instrument.

1.Avoid sharp impacts. Set the binocular down gently on hard surfaces.

2.Tug on the strap after attaching it to make sure it is securely fastened to the binocular before placing it around your neck.

3.Store your binocular in a cool, dry place whenever possible.


1.Blow away any dust or debris on the lens (or use a soft lens brush).

2.To remove dirt or finger prints, clean with the supplied micro-fibercloth rubbing in a circular motion. Use of a coarse cloth or unnecessary rubbing may scratch the lens surface and eventually cause permanent damage. The included, washable“microfiber”cleaning cloth is ideal for the routine cleaning of your optics. Simply breathe lightly on the lens to provide a slight amount of moisture, then gently rub the lens with the microfiber cloth.

3.For a more thorough cleaning, photographic lens tissue and photographic-typelens cleaning fluid or isopropyl alcohol may be used. Always apply the fluid to the cleaning cloth – never directly on the lens.

Voyez de quoi cette nouvelle Legend est faite.

La nouvelle génération des jumelles Bushnell Legend a été reconçue avec une optique de plus haute performance et une conception de corps plus léger et plus résistant-nousappelons ceci “Ultra HD”. Pour le maximum de résolution de détails et de fidélité des couleurs, ils ont conçus le Verre de qualité supérieur ED à haute densité. Les optiques pointus sont entièrement traités multi couches, chaque lentille est individuellement traitée avec notre nouveau revêtement à bande ultra large qui optimise le contraste et la luminosité. Le nouveau Rainguard® HD provoque un “perlement” de l’humidité plus serré que jamais, et même augmente la transmission lumineuse assurant une continuité de la vision qui pourrait être dégradée par le mauvais temps ou même votre propre souffle. Nous avons allégé en ajoutant un châssis en magnésium. Avec un champ de vision de première classe et un écartœil-anneauoculaire extra longue, le dernier Legend couvre plus de terrain avec moins d’effort que jamais auparavant.


Verre de Qualité Supérieure ED à Très Faible Dispersion.Le Verre fluorite de Qualité

Supérieure ED à Très Faible Dispersion restitue une étonnante résolution et contraste

des couleurs, et élimine virtuellement les aberrations chromatiques pour faire apparaître le plus de détails possible dans des conditions lumineuses basses.

Couche à bande ultra large.Un procédé de recouvrement par une couche anti réflexion qui est personnalisée à chaque élément de lentille dans l’optique, pour permettre le plus de lumière possible depuis le verre avant jusqu’à l’œilleton. Le résultat? Luminosité et couleur véritable maximales tout le long du spectre lumineux.

RainGuard® HD.Ce revêtement breveté*, hydrofuge provoque un perlement de l’humidité de la pluie, la neige, du verglas ou de la neige et diffuse moins de lumière, vous avez donc une vision claire et lumineuse quand les autres optiques seraient devenus inutilisable.
