Zeiss Victory 8×54 T SF – Binocular. Rediscover the world of birdwatching with the ZEISS 8×54 T* SF Binocular. You can experience every spectacle nature has to offer with brilliant optics and an unparalleled wide-angle field of view. Thanks to its lightweight, unique ergonomic design, and dynamic fast-focus feature, the VICTORY SF allows for hours of relaxing birding without fatigue. The VICTORY SF is the new benchmark for birding and wildlife observation in the 125-year development of ZEISS binoculars.
Designed for birders and nature enthusiasts, the 8×54 Victory SF T* Binoculars from ZEISS provide an immersive observational experience by combining exceptional optics, a powerful magnification, and a wide field of view in a lightweight and durable housing. Extra-low dispersion fluoride lenses, fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected prisms work together to create images that are clear and bright without distortion across the entire field of view, while colours are accurately represented with high contrast and resolution.
The binoculars’ 8x magnification and wide 65° apparent angle of view provide expansive views, while the exceptionally short 5′ close-focus distance enables you to make detailed observations of insects and small birds on flowers or feeders.
The optical precision starts with SCHOTT Ultra-FL extra-low dispersion (ED) fluoride (FL) lenses that virtually eliminate distortion and chromatic aberration while increasing contrast and colour fidelity. The Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms are coated with ZEISS’ P* phase-correcting coatings to limit light loss and increase colour fidelity and contrast. All of the optics are fully multi-coated with ZEISS’ anti-reflection T* coatings.
These greatly reduce light loss and maximize light transmission to create bright and clear images. A seven-lens eyepiece system uses high-transmission glass and field flatteners to correct for spherical aberrations to allow for pinpoint focusing across the entire field of view.
This SF version of the Victory binoculars feature the Smart Focus system. Unlike conventional focusing wheels that require users to turn the knobs as many as 2.5 times to transition from the minimum to the maximum focus distance, the SF system only requires 1.8 turns.
This means faster and easier changes of your subjects without sacrificing focus precision. The binoculars are designed with ergonomic balance to reduce the feel of the weight in the hand, which reduces user fatigue for comfortable viewing during long observation sessions.
The housing is made from a lightweight, durable, and strong magnesium alloy. A double-hinged, open-bridge design provides a larger surface area for gripping while reducing the overall weight even more. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance, giving them a waterproof rating to 400 mbar of pressure.
The most ergonomic in its class
The lightest weight and exceptional ErgoBalance concept allows users to become one with their binoculars and surroundings. The Zeiss Victory SF features lightweight materials and a unique anti-slip product design for ergonomic comfort that is truly unparalleled. Weighing in at just 1034 g, it allows for several hours of fatigue-free viewing. The centre of gravity is closer to the eye, resulting in a very balanced weight distribution, making it possible to keep a steady hand over extended periods of time.
We think that intuitive means more than just “simple”. More than anything, it means fast. Being able to use binoculars quickly and easily is essential in birding as you try to focus on rapidly moving objects at varying distances. The outstanding SMART FOCUS concept allows you to respond as quickly and intuitively thanks to the improved focusing speed. The focusing wheel is positioned in the triple-link bridge to allow for a comfortable, natural hand position. The anti-slip surface allows for easier, more precise operation and ideal focusing. Once you’ve tried the Victory SF, you’ll never want to live without them.
Made for the outdoors. For always.
In addition to its extraordinary optical performance, you will be immediately impressed by the design and workmanship of the Zeiss Victory SF binoculars from the moment you pick them up. Durability and excellent production quality are requirements for all Zeiss Sports Optics products – standard features, not extras. This means that you can enjoy many, many years of nature experiences first hand, even in the toughest conditions. Only the best survive.
