Zeiss Victory SF 8x42 T* Binoculars (Black) bring upgraded features to the Victory SF line. The focusing system is smoother and more precise; the twist up eye cups have and added click stop; and the armoring is now black. Otherwise, the optics and the ergonomics remain the same. The 8x SF's field of view is still an enormous 444' at 1000 yards, close focus is still 4.9', and the ErgoBalanceConcept yields the same fatigue-reducing balance. Focus from close focus to infinity takes only 1.8 turns.

Zeiss Victory SF 8 x 42 T --A Joy to Use!
5.0 stars
By Joseph B
(San Antonio, TX)
I purchased these bins from Optics4Birding for my Volunteer work in the U.S. National Park Service, Birding classes I lead & for my personal Birding pleasure. They are a joy to own & use! The focusing system is smooth & highly responsive; the eye cups are highly adaptable if you use them (I wear eye glasses & don’t but friends trying them found them very versatile); the armoring lends to the total integrated sturdiness. The ergonomics & balance are phenomenal & offset any weight mis-distribution I was suspect of. The 8 x 42 field of view of 444’ @ 1000 yds is exceptional & minimizes any shakeyness on my part. Close focus is impressive; the overall experience is a clear & crisp view. My experience with low-light conditions is very rewarding. I found the Customer Service at O4B to be most satisfying & the shipping was expedited & thorough. Yes...they are spendy... it’s simply a question of how you choose to use your money...the Birding experiences in the field are the reward for me....sacrifice somewhere else & treat yourself to these bins!

Beyond the Leading Edge

Outstanding Optical Performance
Redesigned Ergonomics
  • Widest Field of View of any Zeiss Victory model in its class offering 444 ft. @ 1000 yds. in the 8x42 model.

  • New proprietary Ultra-FL glass lenses for up to 92% light transmission, and enhanced, proprietary ZEISS T* multi-layer coatings for ultra-bright, detailed, color-rich images.

  • Phase-corrected Schmidt-Pechan prisms with P* coating for contrast and sharpness of view.

  • Special fluoride containing glass with Extra-low Dispersion properties for reduction of color aberrations to an absolute minimum.

  • Fantastic Close-Focus at 4.9ft which is great for closer observation of birds or insects.
  • New Smart-Focus (SF) System requires only 1.8 turns to go from close focus to infinity. The position of the new focusing mechanism also reduces finger reach by 65% for a most natural feel. This becomes important during long observations as well as brief encounters when focus speed is of the essence.

  • Ultra-light Magnesium body, with the new Triple Link Bridge designed for balance, maximum durability, grip, and comfort.

  • Easy handling twist-out lockable eyecup design with 4 precise positioning click stops (0 - 4 - 8 - 12 mm).

  • Intuitively placed Lockable Diopter adjustment in the front center for easy access.


In Depth Features

schott fl glass The newly designed Ultra-FL lens system offers excellent image quality as well as the widest field of view of any Zeiss binoculars for maximum visibility. With a light transmission rate of 92% you gain the edge at dusk and dawn or on dark days. Two lenses made from the highest quality SCHOTT glass containing fluoride ensure the best color reproduction. A seven-lens eyepiece with high-transmission elements and field flatteners ensure sharp, distortion free focus all the way to the edges. This innovative optical concept allows you to rediscover birding and wildlife viewing.

sf grip” New Smart Focus System Being able to quickly focus on your target is essential and with a wider field of view than any previous Zeiss binoculars, the Smart Focus “SF” concept turns your hands into an extension of your senses. The focus wheel is positioned in the new triple-link bridge which enables you to comfortably place your finger on it. finger spread” This revolutionary relaxing and natural motion allows you to observe for longer periods without getting fatigued. Additionally, Zeiss redesigned the lens and prism system so that the weight is shifted more towards the eyepieces so it feels like it wants to settle right in front of your eyes which helps balance far better in your hands than other models for less shaking and longer viewing. Its amazing what a big difference this small change creates!

t star ZEISS T* Lens Coating pioneered by Zeiss themselves is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight when you focus on your target through the binoculars. The same goes for the dielectric mirror: Over 70 layers prevent light loss in the elaborate Carl Zeiss prism systems. More layers increase the razor-sharp details of the image or guarantee a clear view even in bad weather. Carl Zeiss makes it clear what’s important in premium optics, and has even invented the technology it uses itself.

lotutec ZEISS LotuTec coating is inspired by a principle from nature: the lotus flower effect: the water repelling characteristic of lotus leaf surfaces to let water drops pearl off and to repel dirt. LotuTec acts as protective coating also making cleaning and care especially easy. This technology has been used by Carl Zeiss for millions of eyeglass lenses for a long time.
