The most versatile riflescope from ZEISS

Do you refuse to make compromises? So does your ZEISS VICTORY V8. This new riflescope is precisely what you've been looking for. It will impress you with its numerous innovations and sets a new standard in the premium class. From a drive hunt to stalking or sitting game up to a long-distance shot, the ZEISS VICTORY V8 is the best option every time: no riflescope has ever been this flexible and versatile. This is primarily due to its maximum zoom and bullet drop compensation range. The ZEISS VICTORY V8 owes its outstanding image quality and target resolution in this class to its unique transmission of 92%, fluoride lenses (FL), HT glass and the extremely wide fields of view. It has also set new benchmarks in ergonomic excellence. For example, the world's finest illuminated dot can be easily and precisely operated, while the short and compact design ensures maximum ease of use. The new ZEISS VICTORY V8 is rounded off by the new BDC/ASV LongRange whose large adjustment range ensures maximum distances. Regardless of the hunting situation, the ZEISS VICTORY V8 guarantees absolute precision and perfection. It is the only true all-rounder.


More Versatile

Largest zoom range

A hunt is unpredictable – one of the reasons for its appeal. Whether you’re drive hunting or stalking game in your local hunting grounds or elsewhere – the situation can change in a matter of seconds and you must be prepared. The large zoom range of 1.1–8 or 2.8–20, for example, and the associated flexibility at all distances make the ZEISS VICTORY V8 the best super-zoom riflescope on the market. And when the opportunity arises, the VICTORY V8 from ZEISS is ready and waiting – any time, any place.


More Powerful

Optical perfection

It simply isn’t possible to view your target more clearly or brightly. The interaction of 92% transmission, fluoride lens elements and SCHOTT HT glass ensures outstanding image quality and target resolution. Furthermore, the optics feature unparalleled speed. The large exit pupils and extremely large fields of view ensure fast target acquisition and an excellent overview of the hunting situation. Precise shots through narrow lanes are not a problem with the ZEISS VICTORY V8. The large exit pupils enable fully relaxed viewing: no shadowing and an immediate round image. Experience the sheer brilliance and uniquely fast optical system of the ZEISS VICTORY V8.

 

More Compact

Performance-oriented design

Never before has a ZEISS riflescope been more sharply focused on performance and elegance than the VICTORY V8 from ZEISS. The new centre tube featuring a diameter of 36 mm enables a compact design, as well as a lot of room for optical excellence. The first time you look through the ZEISS VICTORY V8, you’ll realize that such image quality and resolution simply cannot be beat. It is also more compact than comparable systems on the market, and therefore stands out with its maximum ease of use. It is an optical masterpiece and a totally new experience in design for uncompromising users who want top performance every time.

 

More Precise

True long-distance shot capability

The VICTORY V8 unites the latest technologies to create memorable moments: thanks to the directly readable shot distance, the new bullet drop compensator (BDC LongRange) is considered the most intuitive and thus most precise long-range shot concept in the world. The adjustment range of 100 clicks enables you to stay on target at distances up to 600 m – another benefit of the 36 mm centre tube diameter.

More Innovative

Pioneering technologies

The multifunction button on the ZEISS VICTORY V8 line is the most advanced illumination control system on the market. It can be quickly, silently and intuitively operated even with gloves on. Another stroke of genius from ZEISS: the integrated intelligent motion sensor. The illuminated dot is automatically deactivated as soon as you put the weapon down. It reactivates as soon as you take aim – a feature that saves time and energy.

 


VICTORY V8 1.1–8x30

The benchmark for driven hunts

Because of its maximum zoom range, the ZEISS VICTORY V8 1.1–8x30 is considered the most versatile driven hunt riflescope in the entire ZEISS product line. The 1.1x magnification typical of ZEISS products is ideal for target acquisition with both eyes open, as well as a quick shot at short distances. The high magnification makes the ZEISS VICTORY V8 1.1–8x30 a truly special product: with its high zoom factor, the specialist for driven hunts allows you to fire accurate shots even over long driven hunt distances. The 8x magnification also enables fast and reliable targeting. The 39.6 m objective field of view is unusually large and provides shooters with a maximum overview and therefore safety and reliability on a driven hunt. During development of the ZEISS VICTORY V8 1.1–8x30, the engineers in Wetzlar paid special attention to the “speed” of the product. The 10 mm exit pupil enables fast aiming. The combination of all these performance features makes the ZEISS VICTORY V8 1.1–8x30 the new benchmark among driven hunt riflescopes.

Reticle

It is on the 2nd image plane on all models and keeps the reticle fine and constant across the entire magnification range - ensuring minimum target coverage and noticeably higher aiming accuracy at long range.

Recticle 60

illuminated

The Reticle 60 is lighter and finer in looks than the similar Reticle 40. The posts only cover half­ the area, leaving double the amount of space between them. This makes it perfect for precision shooting with minimum coverage of the target game. At 12 x magnification and a target coverage of just 0.55 cm at 100 m you keep a good overview without losing sight of the finer details. The illuminated dot is very bright, and can therefore be used for daytime hunting. The dot can be finely adjusted, which makes it ideal for night-time hunting too. The reticle is either in the 1st or 2nd image plane, depending on the riflescope.

Recticle 54

illuminated

The new driven hunt Reticle 54 for the 1.1-4x24 VICTORY HT model is another specialist reticle from Carl Zeiss. This further development of the Reticle 0 is designed for rapid and secure aiming with minimum target coverage. Along with the fine horizontal hairs it also has a cross with an ultrafine illuminated dot. The horizontal line acts as a height corrector when swinging the gun and prevents the rifle from tilting. The cross makes it possible to take aim quickly and to acquire the target even without using the illuminated dot. You will see just how fine the illuminated dot on the new VICTORY HT models is when you view the minimal amount of target coverage: at 12 x magnification just 0.55 cm is covered at 100 m. This makes it the finest and brightest illuminated dot in the world, and a true benchmark.

Accessories

For safe transport, simple sighting in or even easier handling - the accessories for ZEISS riflescopes offer you many possibilities.

ZEISS Flip-Cover

for VICTORY V8 1.8-14x50/2.8-20x56, VICTORY HT 2.5-10x50/3-12x56 and VICTORY FL Diavari 4-16x50/6-24x56

Riflescopes have to stand up to many different external influences during hunting. Whether it is exposed to rain, snow or dust – the functionality of your riflescope must never be impaired. To guarantee that this is the case, ZEISS has now developed the new flip covers. The new riflescope flip covers perfectly protect the lens in any weather. The high-quality lens cap is screwed onto the lens filter thread and can be locked in any position, making it ideal for both left and right-handed shooters. The new ZEISS flip cover is precisely tailored to the requirements of hunting and will impress you with its long service life. During a hunt, the flip cover can be operated reliably, quickly and quietly. The field of view is in no way impaired by the flip cover.

Questions & Answers

Pfeil

Why is ZEISS introducing a super-zoom riflescope with a 36 mm center tube diameter?

A true super zoom improves the general expertise of the device. For a long-range shot, an expanded adjustment range is primarily required in the elevation. To ensure this, the center tube diameter was increased to 36 mm.

Pfeil

How will the VICTORY V8 be mounted in the future without a rail?

At the moment, manufacturers Rechnagel, EAW, Kilic-Feinwerktechnik, Blaser, Mauser and Sauer offer ring mounting solutions with a 36 mm diameter. A ring assembly will cover all key manufacturers in the future.

Pfeil

Are ballistic reticles planned for the Victory V8 LongRange?

No. We have an ASV LongRange (bullet drop compensation LongRange) that perfectly covers this range and entices the user to utilize the extended adjustment range of the 36 mm tube.

Pfeil

Will the VICTORY V8 replace the VICTORY HT?

No. The VICTORY HT will not be replaced because this model has been optimized for maximum transmission. The VICTORY V8 will play the role of the generalist. ZEISS does not want to cede the leading position of the VICTORY HT featuring transmission values of more than 95%.

Pfeil

With such a center tube diameter, this riflescope will sit too high on the weapon – or is this not true?

The assembly height is based on the lens diameter. The deliverable assembly options are adapted to the larger center tube diameter.

Pfeil
