With a magnification and objective lens size combination that is popular around the world for its versatility, the black Bushnell 8×42 Prime Binoculars are an ideal solution for most of your glassing needs—from hunting & birdwatching to hiking & camping, when enjoying sporting events, or just sightseeing around town.

They are outfitted with compact BAK4 roof prisms, anti-reflection multi-coatings, and protective exterior lens coatings that work together to maximize light transmission to deliver bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate colour fidelity and crisp resolution, even in challenging conditions. To withstand harsh conditions, the chassis is nitrogen-filled to resist internal fogging and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible—so these binoculars will handle a tumble into a creek better than you.

Optical Performance
  • Moderate 8x magnification brings subjects in close for viewing without sacrificing exit pupil or eye relief
  • 42mm objective lenses draw in the amount of light required to ensure views stay bright and clear in all light conditions
  • A compact roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes remain slim for easier handling without affecting performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection fully multicoated optics maximize light transmission and improve contrast and colour fidelity
  • Proprietary EXO Barrier exterior lens coatings allow oil, dirt, and sap to be cleaned off without leaving smudges or residue
  • 350-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration provides a solid and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • The large slip-resistant centre focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, even while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction allows user to compensate for optical prescription to produce sharper views
  • Twist-up eyecups for easy use with or without eyewear
  • The standard 1/4″-20 socket under the front hinge cap allows you to mount the binocular to a tripod head or QR plate with an optional adapter for hands-free use
