VICTORY V8

The most versatile riflescope from ZEISS

It is the sum of sophisticated features and how they work together that makes riflescopes from ZEISS an indispensable hunting companion; scanning the landscape delivers an image in extraordinarily sharp detail, outstanding brightness and natural color rendition. This is made possible only by the unique interaction of transmission values of up to 92%, FL lenses, SCHOTT HT glass and extremely wide fields of view.

The Victory® V8 riflescopes also offer superb ergonomic handling. For instance, the world’s finest and brightest illuminated dot can be precisely adjusted and easily set, while the short and compact construction ensures optimal firearm handling. In addition, the large, generous eyebox ensures fast target acquisition and round, clear images at all powers.Their long-range hunting capabilities are another unique feature of the V8 riflescopes. Thanks to the BDC (ASV) and its large adjustment range, the ZEISS Victory® V8 stands at the pinnacle of modern riflescope technology.

    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 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.

    VICTORY V8 4.8–35x60

    The long-range revolution

    The benchmark in the VICTORY V8 line. 35x magnification combined with the BDC Competition bullet drop compensator stands for ultimate long-distance shot excellence. The smallest targets appear highly detailed and and so close that you can touch them. Sensational 92 % light transmission and the unique 60 mm lens provide the necessary brightness to enable accurate long-range shots even at high magnification in darkness. A large exit pupil facilitates fast target acquisition as soon as the weapon is raised. The optical system on the VICTORY V8 impresses with maximum detail rendition thanks to its combination of HT and FL concepts, and also comes standard with parallax compensation. The latest VICTORY V8 from ZEISS therefore unites the properties of the most flexible riflescope on the market with those of a spotting scope. Another highlight is the finest illuminated dot in the world that features subtension the size of a two cent coin at a distance of 1.000 m. In short, it is the most powerful riflescope from ZEISS.

  • Questions & Answers

    Questions & Answers

    • 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%.

    • 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

      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
