  • Features


    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 1–8 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 (ASV/BDC LongRange and Competition) are considered the most intuitive and thus most precise long-range shot concepts in the world. The generous adjustment range of 100 clicks enables you to stay on target at distances up to 600 yds – another benefit of the 36 mm center tube diameter. This precision is further enhanced through the minimal target coverage of the illuminated dot: a fiber optic thinner than a human hair provides the finest illuminated dot in the world, resulting in 0.1188 inches subtension at 100 yards. In other words: pure precision with the smallest target at the greatest distances.

    More Innovative

    Pioneering technologies

    The multifunction illumination 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 rifle down. It reactivates as soon as you take aim – a feature that saves time and energy. The illumination intensity can be continuously adjusted via an easy-to-use, low-profile control wheel optimally positioned on the top of the eyepiece, which can be comfortably operated in full silence.

     

  • Models

    You can choose between four VICTORY V8 models.

     


    VICTORY V8 1–8x30

    The benchmark for fast target acquisition

    Because of its maximum zoom range, the ZEISS VICTORY V8 1–8x30 is considered the fastest close range riflescope in the entire ZEISS product line. The 1x magnification is ideal for target acquisition with both eyes open, as well as quick shots at short distances. Due to the high zoom range, the ZEISS VICTORY 1-8x30 is ideal for African Big Game and allows accurate shots even over longer hunting distances. The 8x magnification enables fast and reliable targeting. The field of view is generous and provides hunters safety and reliability on a dangerous game hunt. During development of the ZEISS VICTORY V8 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 1–8x30 the new benchmark for competition shooters and hunters alike.

    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.

  • Reticles

    Reticles

    Reticle 60

    Extremely fine and bright illuminated dot

    Located in the second image plane (in all V8 models), reticle 60 provides a constant fine reticle throughout the magnification range. Minimal target subtensions result in significant higher shot accuracy at long ranges.

    Reticle 43 (Mil-Dot)

    Extremely fine and bright illuminated dot in the center

    Reticle 43 makes it possible to make elevation adjustments by using the various reticle design features, instead of changing elevation settings. Dots are spaced in one mil (milliradian) increments on the crosshair, allowing also for range estimation, based on the known size of the target.

  • 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

      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)

      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

      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.

      SF

      Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
