What is the opinion on the new Browning Binos made by bushnell? They are supposed to have a scratch resistant coating intstead of Raingaurd. I am wanting to know how they stack up against Bushnell legends ,Monarchs,Pinnacles etc... Are they a good buy for a deer hunting binocular?

Well, I did test the 10x42 Baush & Lomb (Bushnell) Discoverer Roofs to the 10x42 Browning, and I like the Browning much better.  Slightly less CA, and the diopter ring is stiff and smooth, and won't turn easily like the Bushnell with the diopter wheel in between the focus and binocular body.

I thought they were pretty decent for their price range, and I also compared them to a Wind River 12x50 Olympics, and still preferred the Browning.

What do you mean "slightly less CA", what is CA? Where the Brownings comfortable to hold and handle?

CA = Chromatic Aberration.

 

Chromatic Aberration is the color fringing that you notice around a highly contasted subject in an optical view.  Someone else could probably give you the reasons why it occurs, but it usually appears as a purple or yellow hued washing out of color around the subject that you're viewing.

 

You'll see it looking at a dark bird on a wire against a light gray sky, you'll see it when looking at a bright moon against a black sky, you'll see it on a deer against a horizon.  In fact, if you look for it, you'll find some degree of it in nearly any binocular you look through.  It's a matter of degree as to how much of it you see.
