The Bushnell Spectator 8x 40mm model is a mid-grade pair of binoculars designed specifically for use at sporting events or at times when the user is far from the action. The Spectator 8x 40mm model features an 8x magnification capability and a 40mm objective lens which provides a field of view of 425 feet at 1000 yards away, this is the widest field of view out of all the Spectator models. The 8x 40mm model is also equipped with Bushnell "Perma-focus" technology which automatically adjusts the focus based on a users fine tuning which eliminates extra time needed to configure the binoculars. The Spectator model series do not have a rated close focus capability because they are designed to be used at a far distance from the source. The Bushnell Spectator 8x 40mm binocular pair has a listed MSRP of $84.95 in the official Bushnell store.

The Bushnell Spectator 8x 40mm binoculars include additional features such as a "Porro" lens prism system combined with BaK-4 prism glass material, twist-up adjustable eye-cups, a "free" focus system, and a 27oz body weight. The Spectator series of binoculars are designed with a lightweight yet durable body design which Bushnell claims will allow long term use during the length of the entire event.

Unlike most Bushnell binocular models the Spectator series does not include capability with a separate tripod meaning the binoculars must be held during use at all times.

Bushnell Spectator Model Variations

The basic rule of thumb for differing models with smaller or larger magnification capacities and lens sizes in this series is that it affects the overall field of view. If the lens is larger with a higher magnification then the field of view is larger than the model above; if the lens is smaller with a lower magnification then vice versa.
