Great for birdwatching and spotting, the Bushnell Prime Series 8x42mm binoculars are an excellent combination of magnification and field of view. This compact binocular is lightweight, ideal for extended viewing sessions. Built with an IPX7 waterproof rating, they can handle a little tough weather and the occasional bath. They also feature the new EXO Barrier protective coating to help repel dust, debris, and moisture, keeping the lenses clean and clear.

Versatile Magnification and Field of View

The Bushnell Prime 8x42mm binoculars offer an impressive 8x magnification to get you closer to the action. A wide 117m @1000m field of view makes it easier to track moving wildlife, making it an ideal option not only for birdwatching, but general viewing and spotting as well.

Adjustable Focus

Adjust focus with a large, ergonomic centre focusing wheel. It’s tactile and easy to use, even if you’re wearing gloves. To really fine-tune your view, there’s also an adjustable dioptre on the right eyepiece, making it easy to customise the focus to suit your vision.

Multi-Coated Optics

The surface of all the lens optics are fully multi-coated to help increase light transmission for improved image clarity and brightness. The front lens elements also feature a new EXO Barrier coating that’s designed to help prevent dust, debris, and moisture from sticking, for a clean, clear viewing experience.

Durable IPX7 Waterproof Construction

A durable frame adds to the appeal of these compact, lightweight binoculars. They have an impressive IPX7 waterproof rating, so they can easily handle unpleasant weather and a dip in the lake down to 1.5m for about 30 minutes. They fit easily into your bag and make a great companion for wildlife and nature photographers looking for something to complement their camera.
