Leupold BX2 Acadia 10×42 Binoculars Review





The Leupold BX2 10×42 Acadia binoculars are named in honor of the national park in Mississippi river which also happens to be the first. I have observed that many people like better the feel and appearance of a roof prism binocular, but often find themselves resorting to a porro prism design when try to balance the need for advanced image quality with costs.

However, with these binoculars, you no longer have to be torn between the two. The Leupold BX2 Acadia 10×42 are the first binoculars of their kind having combined the handling feel of roof prism binoculars with the exemplary performance and cost of a Porro prism design.
