Brilliant visual experience Newly developed Ultra-FL lens. The newly developed, highly innovative Ultra-FL lens system provides outstanding image quality. The light transmission rate of 92% gives you the edge at dusk or on dark days. Two lenses made from the highest quality SCHOTT glass containing fluoride ensures even better colour reproduction.

This innovative optical concept allows you to rediscover birding and wildlife viewing.
Faster viewing Unparalleled wide-angle field of view - The VICTORY SF gives you the most open, natural view of all. Thanks to the extremely large wide-angle field of view, you will find what you’re looking for far more quickly and reliably than ever before. The 10x42 VICTORY SF's 120m (at a distance of 1 km) and the 8x42 VICTORY SF's 148m are best in class. A close focus range of 1.5m allows you to watch the warblers and butterflies confidently and without hesitation – even in thick vegetation.
Comfortable discoveries The most ergonomic in its class - The light weight and exceptional ErgoBalance-Concept allows viewers to become one with their binoculars and surroundings. The ZEISS VICTORY SF features lightweight materials and a unique high-traction armor for ergonomic comfort that is truly unparalleled. Weighing in at just 780g, it is the most ergonomic in its class – and allows for many hours of fatigue-free viewing. The VICTORY SF takes a considerable amount of weight off the neck and shoulders.
Best focus ErgoBalance-Concept - 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 as if the binoculars were your seventh sense. Once you’ve tried the VICTORY SF, you’ll never want to live without them. Another advantage of the ErgoBalance-Concept is the shift in center of gravity within the binoculars, which makes them feel much lighter to use. What once seemed heavy is comparitevly light, allowing for hours of fatigue-free viewing.
Top quality workmanship 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. 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 survives.
