ZEISS V8 1.1-8x24

Extra-Large eyebox for rapid target acquisition.

Equipped for everyday hunting: ZEISS V8 riflescopes deliver more successful moments on the hunt than any other riflescope from ZEISS thanks to the combination of sophisticated features and their perfect interaction. Outstanding optical quality, an extra-large eye box for fast target acquisition, and the finest illuminated dot in the world make it an unsurpassed companion in any hunting situation. For greater success during your hunt.

Maximum overview and visible comfort: the eye box of the ZEISS V8 1.1-8x24 is larger than the human pupil, maximizing the area in which the hunter sees the entire image. This gives them more room to position their eye and enables them to acquire targets much more quickly – a crucial advantage during driven hunts. Together with its 1.1x magnification, this means the ZEISS V8 1.1-8x24 is ideally suited for quick shots at close range.

Extra-large eyebox

While getting on target quickly, with the reticle centered in the middle – the distance between the eye and the eyepiece (ocular) is crucial. A large ‘user-friendly’ eyebox enables you to acquire the target quickly and easily, ensuring higher success rates in dynamic hunting situations.

1.1 Magnification

The 1.1 magnification equates to the natural human eyesight. The hunter can therefore comfortably use both eyes open – for total awareness – when aiming. The hunter’s overall view through the scope and outside the scope illustrates full, clean and visually balanced image characteristics. This allows for a fast and ideal environmental overview resulting in a much faster target acquisition.

The world’s finest illuminated dot

The secret behind the precision of ZEISS riflescopes is their ultra-fine illuminated dot and its extremely low target coverage. With only a fraction of the thickness of a human hair, the fibre optics system delivers the world’s finest illuminated dot – 3.3-millimetre target coverage at 100 metres is the breathtaking result (V8 & V6 @20x). Pure precision for the smallest targets and the greatest distances.

Brilliant image quality

The Ultra-FL Concept contains several SCHOTT fluoride glass elements for absolute color fidelity, brightness, and clarity. Ensuring you the finest resolution of details, even in the harshest conditions and most challenging environment. 

ZEISS T* Coating

ZEISS T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images­­ which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.

Stable and Shot-Proof

The ZEISS V8, ZEISS Victory HT, ZEISS Conquest V6, and ZEISS Conquest V4 riflescopes are all ideally suited for use with "clip-on" attachments.

Multifunction Button

The multifunction illumination control button is the most advanced reticle illumination system on the market. It can be quickly, silently, and intuitively operated even with gloves on. The illumination 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 – and ensures an immediate and perfect aiming solution in any lighting condition.

The most versatile riflescope

The combination of maximum zoom range, the brightest optics and optimal ease of use makes the ZEISS V8 the ultimate all-purpose riflescope for all distances and situations – whether you are on a driven hunt, stalking, high seat hunting, or shooting at long-range. Whatever your hunting venture, the ZEISS V8 – the company's best super-zoom riflescope – enables fast reactions and maximum flexibility. Designed to ensure maximum hunting success.

Smart illuminated dot reticle

In combination with the multifunction button for control of the illuminated dot, an intelligent motion sensor system automatically activates the illuminated dot as soon as the rifle is raised to take aim. This enables hunters to concentrate on the hunt and the opportunity.

True long-range shooting capability

With an adjustment range of up to 100 clicks (click value = 1cm@100m), the BDC (ASV) enables accurate results through precise aiming at long-range. Long distances are no longer an obstacle.

Precise images

The new ZEISS V8 riflescopes provide brighter images coupled with most excellent image quality through advanced optical designs. These designs call for the best lens elements, light transmission coatings, and protective lens coatings. Furthermore, an ultra-sharp image is assured over all distances, thanks to the side parallax adjustment feature, standard with ZEISS V8 1.8-14x50, V8 2.8-20x56, and V8 4.8-35x60 models.

Abuse Vs Reward

Whether packing it in on a truck, on hoof and saddle, or on foot, the rough terrain demands the most of your equipment has to offer.  Rest assured, just as your are able to withstand the bumps, bruises, and breaks from your hunt, your ZEISS gear will be there to take the punishment right along with you.  And it will be there to help you obtain your reward of the harvest.*

*A test shot is recommended after unintentional blows or shocks to the target optics.

Continuous shocks for 90 minutes

Continuous vibration test – Even after 1.5 hours of continuous vibration in various directions, upon repeating the shot test for accuracy, the grouping on the test target remains unchanged.

Temperature

From the Sahara to the Arctic

Wherever your hunting adventures takes you, ZEISS knows the conditions are never very favorable. Optics and their mechanical counterparts must conform to the violent environmental shifts to be reliable and repeatable. Extreme heat and cold awaits the hunter around the globe. This is the time for performance – not excuses. ZEISS optics operate reliably in the most severe climatic conditions.

Temperature shock

Extreme temperature shock test – ZEISS optics are tested by exposure to rapid temperature shocks from -13° F to 122° F within a period of 5 minutes.

Corrosion

Hard core hunting

ZEISS optics are high-precision tools proven extremely reliable when exposed to the harshest salt-water testing.   All ZEISS optics are exhaustively tested to ensure their endurance and suitability for every condition your hunt and nature has to offer.

Reticle 54 Illuminated

The driven hunt reticle 54 is another special reticle from ZEISS. This enhanced version of the reticle 0 is designed for fast and reliable shots with minimal target subtension. In addition to the fine horizontal bar, it features crosshairs containing the ultra-fine illuminated dot. The horizontal bar is used for height correction when following a target and protects against weapon tilting. The crosshairs allow you to quickly shoulder your rifle and aim at the target, even without an illuminated dot. One look at the subtension reveals just how fine the illuminated dot is – at 12x magnification, only 0.55 cm is covered at a distance of 100 m. This is the finest and brightest illuminated dot in the world, a real benchmark. The reticle is located in the riflescope’s second image plane.

Reticle 60 Illuminated

The reticle 60 is lighter and finer than the reticle 40, which was widely used only a few years ago. The bars have only half the subtension of the earlier model and there is twice the amount of free space between them. It is therefore ideally suited for precise shooting with the least possible coverage of the target game. With 12x magnification and a subtension of only 0.55 cm at a distance of 100 m, you always have an excellent overview – no fine details are hidden from view. The illuminated dot is extremely bright and can therefore also be used for daytime hunting. The brightness of the illuminated dot can be dimmed at extremely finely, making it ideal for night hunting as well. The reticle is located in the riflescope’s second image plane.
