Description

Zeiss Victory Series Binoculars - State-of-the-art

 

For people who do not want to make any compromises when it comes to optical performance and handling in the field.  The state of the art Victory FL binoculars in this series use fluoride glass to offer optimum brilliance and color fidelity for authentic image rendition.  Furthermore, these binoculars feature maximum transmission values and minimum stray light levels so that they have amazing twilight performance.  This is not just our opinion.  Many trade journalists have noted the FLs' exceptional brilliance and twilight performance.

 

Clearly the leading edge - Victory FL binoculars

 

Maximum brightness, contrast, resolution and color fidelity, light transmission of over 90%, optimum edge-to-edge sharpness, minimum chromatic aberration, widest field of view with wide-angle eyepieces, featured with the innovative LotuTec coating - these binoculars and their special lenses with fluoride-containing glasses (FL) amazingly can capture the smallest detail.  Low weight as well as visual ease-of-use and exceptional handling, in addition to the best optical image quality of its class make the Victory FL unbeatable.

 

LotuTec Protective layer for a crystal clear view

 

LotuTec is an effective protection coating for eyepiece and objective lenses - thus offering sharper viewing.  The coating remarkably reduces soiling of the lens with its strong repelling effect.  A principle of nature was the catalyst of this invention: the Lotus leave effect.  It describes the water-repelling propery of surfaces, to simply repel water drops and dirt.

 

Zeiss specialists were able to apply this principle to the optical glass: a water drop touches the coated surface with a much smaller contact area thus forming a ball that repels without leaving a trace.  Oil smears and fingerprints adhere less and can be removed more quickly, easily and free from trace - LotuTec makes the cleaning and caring for the lenses very easy.  In addition, the LotuTec coating is resistant, abrasion-proof and aids in the reduction of scratches.

        Comments about Zeiss Victory FL 10x42mm Binoculars:

        I can't image a use these glasses would not work well for. This is my first pair of high end binoculars and I was blown away by the visual experience. The color, brightness and clearity were unbelieveable and beyond anything I have experienced before. I compared these binos to other high end binos before purchase and none performed better.The swarovskis were comparable albeit more expensive.

          I use mine for general purposes. The clarity is unbelievable. They are lightweight, strong with adjustments easy to reach. By far, the best binoculars I've ever owned. You can spot a flea on your dog's behind at 1000 paces !

            Comments about Zeiss Victory FL 10x42mm Binoculars:

            After using old Zeiss 8x30 Deltrentis WWII binos for years, I got Leica Ultravids. I used them for several years. I enjoyed the top-notch optical quality, but hated the lousy focusing mechanism with the notorious "null" spot - an insulting flaw for the price of the binos - and keep in mind that birders do a LOT of focusing, So, I did my homework and hinted that I wanted Zeiss Victories. My wife made my wish come true and got me 8x42 Victories. Let's face it, Leica, Swaro and Zeiss all deliver a great view, but it's the handling that makes one or the other a pleasure to use. Leica had a sloppy focusing mechanism (dead spot), Swaro was just a little "off balance" for me (a personal choice), but Zeiss handled like a dream. Even when I know I should grab my 10x for distant views of waterfowl, I go for my 8x Zeiss because of the handling - and, make no mistake, handling makes up for magnification. If they don't handle well, all the optical quality and magnification in the world is for naught. Once you combine top quality optics with great handling, well, you've got a winner. Zeiss did it right, optically and ergonomically.
