Zeiss Victory RF 8x42 Details

The versatile all-rounder in the Victory RF series, the 8x power enables a good balance between image detail and maintaining a wide field of view. Thus these are perfectly suited at short to medium ranges and perhaps where your intended target is fast and somewhat erratic moving. Here the wide angle of view will not only make it easier and quicker for you to locate the target but from there it is easier to keep it in view.The combination of the very end optics and coatings and their resultant high level of light transmission with the large 5.3 mm exit pupil mean that not only are you sure of a very bright image during the day, but their performance in reasonably low light like what you find in a forest or thick woods is not compromised.

About Zeiss Victory RF Binoculars

Made in Germany and combining the very high level optics and build quality of the top of the range Zeiss Victory HT with an extremely high performance laser rangefinder, the Zeiss Victory RF is a top of the range series specifically designed for hunters. They are available in either 8x or 10x powers with a choice of standard sized 42mm lenses or large 54mm versions that are designed to perform in extreme low light settings.

Important Features

This very high precision instrument is protected by a robust and lightweight magnesium alloy chassis. It has a double-link bridge design that further adds to its strength, but at the same time makes for a very ergonomic shape that is both secure and comfortable to hold onto.
Nitrogen filled, these binoculars are both fog proof and 100% waterproof. Indeed they will remain watertight at a depth of 4 meters for 2 hours. 
Twist-up eyecups, a good level of eye-relief and diopter correction ensure that they can be calibrated to your preferences and vision.

Rangefinder Features

With a maximum range of 2300 meters, there is no denying that the rangefinder on the Victory RF is powerful. However, it is also very accurate and can factor in the temperature, air pressure and your ballistics for up to nine different profiles. All this computation takes less than 0.3 of a second and you are presented with all the information you need to take the most accurate shot possible. What's more, the LED display automatically adjusts in brightness depending on ambient light conditions and you can change settings like going from the scan, to target modes with either hand, leaving the other free to hold onto your weapon.

Optical Properties

Using very high transmission glass containing Fluoride, the optics on the Zeiss Victory RF binoculars are fully multi-coated with their proprietary ZEISS T* material for maximum light capture, transference an overall image quality. 
High quality Abbe-König prisms are used and the lenses contain fluoride (FL) which are able to reduce a number of aberrations and thus improves colour correction and image sharpness compared to many other lens types used on binoculars.
The outer lenses have the Carl Zeiss LotuTec coatings added to them which are Hydrophobic and thus repel water, ensuring the best possible views in wet conditions and making them easier to clean.


The Zeiss RF binocular comes supplied with a CR2 batterypadded bag with its own carry strap, padded carrying neck strap, objective lens covers, rain-guard (eyepiece cap) and a high quality Zeiss lens cleaning cloth.

Že odkar je Zeiss ta dvogled predstavil, sem čakal, da pride v prodajo. Po mojem mnenju boljšega lrf daljnogleda ni, oz.za zdaj ne obstaja. Aplikacija deluje odlično. Cena zelo visoka, ampak primerna za izdelek tovrstne kakovosti.

Ever since Zeiss introduced these binoculars I've been waiting to order them. There are no better LRF binoculars currently in the market in my opinion. The app also works great. Although the price is quite high, it is totally suitable for the product like this.
