I just received my new 10x42 bino's from Bushnell. They are the perma-focus type and they are even better than the 10x50 Bushnell bino's I already own. The clarity is much better and the frame is a lot more rigid than the conventional designs. I am extremely pleased with the clarity which allowed me to see individual bullet holes at 100M. I will let you all know how they hold up to some pretty good abuse. For the money, the initial impression and quality are much better than I anticipated.
