    Innovative optical concept

    Unrivalled brightness, thanks to a light transmission of up to 95% and more - the result of the innovative optical concept of the VICTORY HTs. The perfect interplay of SCHOTT® HT glass, the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating, and the Abbe-König prism system allows observation of those creatures that are active in the twilight hours: nighthawks, bats, screech owls, deer and other shy animals both early and late. This innovative, high-performance package will enable you to enjoy the true majesty of nature, even in poor light conditions.

    Ergonomic Comfort-Focus-Concept

    The best optics, and the easiest to use in the field: that is the promise of the new Comfort-Focus-Concept. The unusually large focusing wheel is set well forwards on the bridge. You will be aware of the benefits the very first time you use the binoculars. The focusing wheel falls naturally under your index finger while your thumbs gently grip the barrels and the remaining three fingers rest easily under the hinge. You will no longer have to think about how to hold the binoculars: when a bird flies past you can simply lift them up and focus. The finely tuned long gearing of the focusing wheel allows you to focus on your target quickly and accurately. The VICTORY HT: designed to ensure that you get the most out of your bird and nature watching!

    Extreme robust Double-Link-Bridge

    The extremely robust construction offers the very highest levels of precision and durability. The housing, with its innovative double-link bridge, is made of high-tensile, ultra-light magnesium. The focusing wheel is securely embedded between the bridges. This means that the VICTORY HT is perfectly equipped for use even in the most extreme conditions.

    Brilliant FL-concept

    Make the most of the full richness of colour and brilliance in the world of birds. The outstanding lens construction, using lenses made of high-performance fluoride glass - FL for short - helps you to see the colours with more brilliance and natural authenticity and to observe details such as plumage more clearly. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum. Important details, such as a bird's eyebrow stripe, are shown as nature intended them to be seen, while colours and shapes are clearly defined.

    LotuTec® coating

    Water rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf, leaving no trace. The LotuTec®coating on the lens and eyepiece ensures that water or snow simply roll off the surface of the glass. Since neither water nor dirt can collect on the surface of the VICTORY HT you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.

    Design for perfection

    The elegant and ergonomic design makes the VICTORY HT binoculars far easier to use. The particularly slim construction of the double-link bridge and an extremely large grip on the lens barrels make these binoculars exceptionally natural and easy to handle. This ensures smooth imaging in any situation, however they are held. In this way the design supports the highest standards of perfect visual experiences.

  • Models

    You can choose between four VICTORY HT models.

  • Questions & Answers

    Questions & Answers

    • Why do the VICTORY HT binoculars only come with a 54x lens?

      With the VICTORY HT binoculars, ZEISS intentionally avoided a 56 mm lens diameter to make it as compact and lightweight as the all-rounders in the size 50 class, yet still the top premium binoculars regarding transmission. Unlike comparable 56x binoculars, these weigh 20% less.

    • What is the difference between FL, HD, HT and ED?

      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

      FL = Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

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

      We use HT in the sense of a complete HT concept: binoculars that are based on the FL binoculars but which have extremely high levels of light transmission. VICTORY HT binoculars also have FL and HT lenses.

    • 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

       

      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.
