eBay store ASavings has the Bushnell Legend M 8x42 for $139 with free shipping. Not nearly as good as that rebate deal last year (I think my final price was under $100 after rebate), but still darn...

I have two 8x42 Legend M's. One has fine focusing, probably not as good as other bins I've used, but not terrible. The other pair is pretty stiff. Not unusable, but close. It's too bad that Bushnell...
