The new Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42 benefits from an innovative optical concept: SCHOTT HT high transmission glass, the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and the Abbe-König-prism system.
The result is a set of binoculars with unrivalled brightness, making it possible for you to observe for much longer periods of time. Complementing the unique, elegant design, the binoculars rely on particularly innovative ergonomics. The new Comfort-Focus-Concept, for example, makes the brightest ultra premium binoculars in the world extremely easy to use. More freedom of movement whatever the weather – that is the beauty of the Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42.
Thanks to the 5.3 mm exit pupil diameter, a particularly wide field of view and 8x magnification, these binoculars are outstandingly well suited for a wide range of different uses. The vastly superior transmission levels deliver extremely bright images even in the worst light conditions. This means that you can go on watching for longer, until deep into the twilight. Weighing just 785 g and with their robust, Double-Link-Bridge design, these binoculars are a lightweight and extremely reliable companion – with the highest mechanical focussing precision.
Innovative optical concept – unrivalled brightness, thanks to a light transmission of up to more than 95% – this unique result is created by the innovative optical concept of the VICTORY HT range. It is made possible by the perfect interplay of SCHOTT® HT glass, the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and the Abbe-König prism system. Observe those creatures that are active in the twilight hours, such as nightingales, earlier in the morning and bats, screech owls and other shy animals later in the evening. This innovative, high-performance package will enable you to enjoy the true majesty of nature, even in poor light conditions
Ergonomic Comfort-Focus-Concept – top quality user ergonomics – that is the promise of the new Comfort Focus concept, focussing wheel. The strikingly large focussing wheel is set a long way forwards on the bridge. You will be aware of the benefits the very first time you use the binoculars. The focussing wheel lies automatically below your index finger, your thumbs gently grip the barrels while the remaining three fingers rest easily next to your index finger. 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 particularly long gearing of the focussing wheel allows you to focus on your target quickly and accurately.
The Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42 designed to ensure that you get the most out of your birdwatching! 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 focussing wheel is securely embedded in the housing. This means that the Extreme robust Double-Link-Bridge Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42 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 simply rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf or off a duck’s back.
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 Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42 you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.
Design for perfection – the elegant and ergonomic design makes the Carl Zeiss Victory HT 8X42 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.
