Victory HT 8x42
The brightest Binoculars from Zeiss
The Victory HT premium binoculars allow you to experience hunting in a whole new dimension. Thanks to the revolutionary optical concept, they offer transmission levels of 95%+. This outstanding value is achieved through the perfect combination of Schott HT lenses, Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and Abbe König prism system. It enables you to keep watching for much longer when out hunting – even in the deepest twilight. The ergonomic design is equally innovative. The impressive new Comfort Focus concept has a large focusing wheel embedded in the double-link bridge. It makes the binoculars extremely robust and very easy to use. Experience cutting-edge optics of the highest level – with the brightest premium binoculars in the world.
Brighter - Deep into the night
The revolutionary light transmission of 95% and more enables hunting deep into the night. This unique experience is the result of an innovative optical design. It is the combination of extremely transparent Schott HT high transmission lens elements and the enhanced Zeiss T* multi-coating. This enables the Zeiss Victory HT products to set a new global standard for premium riflescopes. The bright, high-contrast images provide you with the extra few minutes you need on a hunt. After all, it is often the first or last light of the day that is vital for those magic hunting moments that will always remain in your memory.
More Ergonomic - Form follows intuition
The design of the Zeiss Victory HT line is based fully on intuitive and reliable operation. On binoculars, the convenient position of the focus wheel ensures ease of use and fatigue free focusing. It is conspicuously large and easy to reach in the bridge. This allows you to conveniently operate the focusing wheel – even while wearing gloves. Furthermore, the low weight of these binoculars transforms the 8 and 10x54 into a new class of night hunting binoculars.
More Elegant - Design based on tradition
The design of the Zeiss Dialyt in 1962 made binoculars immortal. The Zeiss Victory HT is now following in the footsteps of this Zeiss classic – with further exciting enhancements. It is a design revolution born of tradition.

The barrels fit my hand nicely, the weight is just right, the binoculars are well-balanced, the eyecups are comfortable and the focus knob operates smoothly with a relatively short throw from long distance to short distance. I literally would not change a thing about the design. Even the strap is comfortable and the front and rear lens protectors stay in place.
The optics of the Zeiss are brighter than the Swarovski Optik El Swarovision Binoculars, 8.5x42mm and noticeably brighter than the Canon 10x42 L Image Stabilization Waterproof Binoculars (which I also own and love), to which I compared them. Not only does this increased brightness make the viewed object easier to see, for viewing over long periods of time, this brighter image should reduce eye strain. This increased brightness in noticeable in daylight viewing, but is even more evident in situations with diminished light such as dusk.
Since I use these binoculars in Arctic environments were they are exposed to saltwater, snow, rain, dirt and sand, I was concerned that cleaning the front elements "in the field" with just a microfiber and no water could scratch the front element glass or remove its coatings. Over the years, I scratched the front element and removed coatings in areas of my older Nikon Monarchs by cleaning them in this manner while out in the field away from running water.
I could not find the size of the front element threads online, but measured them with calipers and determined that they take 46mm filters. I wanted filters that were optically as high of a grade as the Zeiss binocular elements and were "Clear" rather than "UV". I selected B+W 46mm XS-Pro Clear with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating (007M) B+W 46mm XS-Pro Clear with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating (007M). The Nano Coating increases the price over the normal MRC versions, but supposedly beads and sheds water more effectively, something which was important given the manner in which I use these. If this is not as important to you, B + W makes an MRC version of this clear filter that costs less than the Nano-coated version.
Since installation of these filters prevents use of the factory front lens covers, I use inexpensive third party 42mm lens caps like these: Univeral 46mm Center Pinch Front Lens Cap for Canon DSLR Camera or Univeral Camera 46mm Front Cap Cover for Canon Lens Filter. I tried using the screw on, flip-cap Op/Tech covers, but they were significantly wider than the lens diameter and proved too bulky and awkward, so I returned to the inexpensive, removable, third-party caps.
All in all, these are perfect binoculars.
At any rate, the higher magnification binocs are really awesome, and every bit as good as Zeiss Victory bins are supposed to be. Brightness and clarity are amazing. But the field of view isn't as wide as the eight magnifications, and one does sacrifice some brightness in the higher powers. At least I can look a bit farther away, and I'm getting used to being more on-target the first time when looking at little brown jobs flitting among the leaves.
