My father's 60th birthday is coming up and I want to pick him up a good pair of binoculars. Right now he has a cheap pair of some off brand (6x30mm) and would like to get him a good mod-ranged pair. I would love to get him a pair of Bushnell Elites as i love mine, but it's just not in the budget right now. The budget is only around $200 but I could spend up to $400 if I go with Bushnell as I have a credit with them. His use will be back yard bird watching, but they occasionally go to the coastal areas and do a little bird watching will they are there. Would the Legend Ultra HDs be a good choice in 8x42, or is there a better option out there in the price range?

I haven't had a chance to look through the Ultra yet, but have always been quite pleased with the standard Legends.  I expect the new Ultra to be nicer and probably would make a great gift.

Let me just say WOW!The Legend Ultra HD's are very impressive. I will give them a full workout in Yellowstone next week and provide some feedback.

Yes, I am very pleased with the Ultra HD. I just received a pair of the new Elites which, for whatever reason, are now the old E2s with a few updates and better glass. I'm hoping they will be just as good as last years Elites, but I am doubtful.  Will do a side by side with the Legend Ultra's in two weeks, should know by then if I wasted my money on the 2010 "Elites".

The money back guarantee, along with some of the VERY positive comments I've found make these seem pretty darn interesting, especially for the price.  Going to have to find some locally to check out.  Might make a good pair to replace my old Pentax DCFs that I keep in the truck.  Wonder how the 8x would stack up against the Zen Ray ED2 8x?
