Brighter

Unique visual experience

Take a new look at the world with the most versatile premium binoculars in the company’s history: the new ZEISS VICTORY SF delivers high-contrast, bright images that allow you to see even the finest details in poor light – regardless of when and where you are hunting. Light transmission of 92% enables you to master any challenges faced in the twilight. Furthermore, the highly innovative ultra-fluoride lens system provides maximum resolution coupled with extreme detail rendition. Multiple fluoride lens elements made of high-quality SCHOTT glass ensure even better colour rendition and brilliance. A seven lens element eyepiece featuring a field flattener generates excellent image definition right out to the edge.

Unhampered

Maximum wearing comfort

Sometimes, you have to work hard to experience something unique while hunting. Stalking for long periods, steep climbs or fatiguing day-long hikes in the quest for a hunting challenge are more the rule than the exception. The ultra-light design and the use of innovative materials on the ZEISS VICTORY SF result in unique wearing comfort: tipping the scales at only 780 grams, you hardly notice they’re there.

Further

Unparalleled field of view

With the ZEISS VICTORY SF, you won't miss out on even the finest details. The extremely large wide-angle fields of view enable you to sight game considerably faster than ever before. The first time you look through the product, you will experience just how impressive the fields of view on our ZEISS VICTORY binoculars truly are.

To top it off, the unbelievably wide fields of view featuring stunning edge definition can be fully utilized without annoying distortions thanks to the ZEISS Field Flattener technology. Experience hunting and all that it has to offer every time, without missing a thing even in the most difficult hunting situations.

More Ergonomic

Longest observation

The ZEISS VICTORY SF are the optimal binoculars for those extra-challenging hunts. They fully demonstrate their quality wherever you may be – the mountains, stalking game or anywhere that binoculars are intensively used. Decisive for comfortable observation with the ZEISS VICTORY SF is the centre of gravity far behind the eyepiece. This means the binoculars move on their own towards your eyes where they rest as light as a feather for fatigue-free observation. Traditional binoculars are heavier in the front, resulting in more stress and strain on the upper and lower arms. The innovative ErgoBalance concept is thus an outstanding product benefit, which significantly improves handling in the field and enables observers to become one with their binoculars and their environment.

Faster

Rapid focusing

Fast and intuitive operation of the binoculars is vital to a hunt. Intuitive means not only simple, but first and foremost fast and precise. Being able to quickly focus on game is essential, especially while stalking or in uneven terrain. The SMART FOCUS 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. Experience the SMART FOCUS concept on your next hunt and make use of every opportunity, however fleeting it may be, for surefire success every time.

Questions & Answers

Pfeil
