Product description

An ideal all-around binocular for observations in any light and any weather, the Victory 8x42 binocular brings you closer to your quarry than you ever thought possible. The binocular is outfitted with an array of groundbreaking optical engineering touchstones, including an FL Concept optical system and LotuTec lens coatings. Combined, the optical advancements produce the brightest, sharpest, and most vivid images imaginable. At the same time, the binocular's cutting-edge ergonomics and perfect balance make it comfortable to use during prolonged periods. And all Victory binoculars feature individually adjustable twist-up eyecups for superior operating comfort. Other details include a rapid center focusing mechanism with integrated, lockable diopter adjustments; dielectric mirror coatings for superior image brightness and contrast; a rugged nonslip rubber housing that absorbs noise and shock; and an award-winning offset hinge design for exceptional portability and handling.

Victory Optics
The flagship feature of all Victory binoculars is the FL Concept optical system. The FL Concept, which integrates a number of Zeiss innovations, uses fluoride glass to maximize performance, helping you get the most out of every moment in the field. The resulting images are brighter and sharper and the colors are more vivid and highly saturated. Plus, the optics perform well in extended twilight and low-light conditions, even in the most unforgiving weather. And unlike ordinary optical systems, the FL Concept significantly minimizes chromatic aberrations and virtually eliminates annoying stray light interference, image fuzziness, and low contrast, allowing you to reap the ultimate visual rewards.

The FL Concept system starts with a thin lens design that employs multiple air-spaced elements to reduce weight, improve resolution, and minimize distortions. Zeiss also added a highly sophisticated eyepiece design that creates a wide field of view and long eye relief. Other details include exceptional internal baffling against stray light; T* anti-reflective multilayer coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces for brighter, high-contrast images; high-efficiency prisms for improved light transmission; and P* phase correction prism coatings for better resolution.

The binocular also features a LotuTec coating that excels in inclement weather. Zeiss believes that whether you're out in the field in heavy rain or entrenched in a bug-infested swamp, the last thing that should interfere with the moment is water and dirt on your lenses. Like a lotus leaf, the LotuTec coating on the objective and ocular lenses repels water so efficiently that raindrops literally roll right off the glass. In addition, users can easily wipe the super-smooth lens surface clean without smearing or damaging the optics. As a testament to its superiority over other lens coatings, the LotuTec was honored with the prestigious Gray's Best award, recognizing it as the only optical process that allows lenses to shed water completely. Even in the heaviest downpours, your lenses will remain free from water and dirt, so the view will be as impeccable as ever.
