    Bushnell Fusion Mile ARC Range Finder Binoculars

    Question 1
    Has anybody had any first hand experience with these Binos? Thinking about getting a set in the 12x50!

    Question 2
    Is anybody heading to Canada and back to NZ before Christmas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have a pair in 10x42, very good optics - not quite up there with top end euro glass, but damn good. Range finder always worked well for me, could get readings easily out to 1300yards and more.

    Very good for the price but once you look through a pair of swaros, or leicas, the bushells are like looking through a fish bowl

    yeah/nah - there is a difference in optical quality but its small, very small to my eyes anyway. Definitely not a fish bowl experience at all, the clarity & sharpness of image with Fusions is excellent. I have Leica RF binos as well as the Bushnell Fusions. Have also used Swaros in the field. Before buying the Leicas I tried all the top brands side x side, Swaro, Zeiss etc. To my eyes all exhibited slightly different viewing experience - whether that be clarity, colour rendition, sharpness of image, depth of focal plane, fov etc etc. From my "sampling" of all the top end bino RF's the Zeiss Victory had the edge, but I did not want to part with $4.5k.

    Have the Fusions as a spare, probably should get around to selling them.

    I have the 12x50 Love them
    I've looked through plenty of fish bowls and the Bushnells are well above that league

    Pros
    price for what you get
    Clear glass
    amazing what you can spot with 12x that I probably would have missed at 10x
    Have ranged to 1600 M on reflective rock 1300 on a large hereford bull
    ballistic data is good if you need to go straight to the Scope rather than get the cell phone out for an app data but definitely not as good as strelok pro.
    Battery life good had them 2 years only one battery change (which wasn't really necessary but was going on a oncer trip and didn't want Murphy to come along too)
    Cons
    Heavy guess you've got to remember they are binos and range finder in 1
    don't fit in supplied bag too well once you've attached the supplied lens caps. mag catch on flap keeps opening. Some kind of bino harness is on my xmas list

    I've got the 10x42's.
    No issues. Havnt looked through euro versions so cant compare but for the price I think they are good value.

    Thank you everyone! Much appreciated.
    Sounds like they are a go, will report back once they have arrived.

    Just incase my eyes pick up a big difference, I will avoid looking through any top teir models.

    These should be a massive upgrade compared to the entry level Bushnells I currently have
