The Company

To truly experience nature, you need to take inspiration from it. This is a concept which has been reflected in every single idea of Carl Zeiss’ products and services for over 165 years. Just as nature never comes to a standstill and constantly changes, Carl Zeiss is always striving with a tireless curiosity and relentless passion to question the status quo and set new standards with technical innovations.

Since 1846 this enthusiasm has enabled us to continue perfecting the performance and quality of our products as well as our customer service. Take, for example, the world’s first roof prism binoculars, the first riflescope with a prism erector system, our application-oriented product design or the construction of optics with ever better transmission values. Time and time again, we’ve impressed even the most demanding of hunters, bird watchers and nature lovers with our new innovations.

You will sense Carl Zeiss’s pioneering spirit the moment you pick up one of our products. The unconditional pursuit of perfection is reflected in every pair of binoculars, spotting scope, or riflescope made by Carl Zeiss, making us a world leader in sports optics.

We also remain committed to this philosophy for the future, as our goal is to give you and all avid hunters, bird watchers and nature lovers, new insights into nature, time and time again. So that you can experience the excitement of being closer to nature than ever before – even more closely, even more precisely and even more intensely.

This is the moment we work for.

Hunting

The world of hunting has always held a certain fascination. Nowhere else can you sharpen your natural instincts better than in the great outdoors. Sitting for long periods in absolute silence. Stalking without being noticed and the rush of adrenaline at the crucial moment. For hundreds of years Carl Zeiss has been developing leading-edge optics for moments like these, giving hunters the confidence that comes from being perfectly equipped for any hunting situation.

Nature

Humans have been inspired by nature since the beginning of time. Being at one with nature, immersing yourself in silence to find peace and relaxation. Taking in unforgettable sights as great herds roam across the plains of Africa and relishing unique moments as colourful birds fly up out of the bushes. It is for times like these that Carl Zeiss has spent over a century developing leading-edge optics, giving nature lovers the opportunity to experience nature more closely than ever before.
