Beyond the Leading Edge
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
- 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,
- 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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
