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.

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

What do the abbreviations mean?

Meaning of the abbreviations

FL
    Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

GA
    Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour

T*
    ZEISS T* multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility

MC
    ZEISS multi-layer coating (multi coating)

P / P*   
    Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating

B
    Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used

S
    Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation

M
    Riflescope models with ZEISS mounting rail.

iC
    Riflescope with illumination control

ED
    Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

HD
    High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution

HT
    High Transmission = lenses by SCHOTT with very good transmission properties.
