C J,

Looks like some of our different conclusions come down to personal preference. Lucky for me that the changes made by Bushnell favor my preferences.

The color of the objectives is interesting. If I understand your comments correctly on your Zen Ray having magenta coloured objective coatings, it makes me wonder if Zen Ray made some mid stream changes.

Here are some photos I took yesterday of the Bushnell Legend M 10X42 and the Zen Ray ED3 10X42. The Bushnell is on the left and the Zen Ray is on the right. The Bushnell looks to lean toward magenta but not my Zen Ray.

Here is a Wiki sample of magenta which leans toward the reds that I see in the Legend M.

Here is a Wiki sample of cyan that seems to lean more toward what I see in my Zen Ray.

How do the objective colors of my Zen Ray compare to what you have?
