The Zeiss Victory V8 2.8-20x56 is an impressive riflescope that offers superior performance and optical clarity thanks to its 92% light transmission rate and sharpness from edge to edge.
It also has excellent mounting solutions, with either a Zeiss ZM/VM rail mount or 30mm scope rings being available depending on the version chosen.
Additional features such as the Zeiss LotuTec coatings and T* coatings help protect against water droplets, dirt, and debris, making it ideal for low-light and long-range situations.
The only downsides are that the scope is somewhat heavy and pricey when compared to similar models on the market but these factors do not detract from its quality overall.
This rifle scope is best suited for low light and long-range hunting.
Zeiss Victory V8 rifle scopes are perfect for hunting, offering 8 times zoom range, LotuTec protective coating, enhanced T* lens coatings with great light transmission, and a wide field of view which makes targeting easier. The 30mm main tube gives the scope a big internal elevation range which makes it one of the best all-round rifle scopes currently on the market.
There are 5 models in the Z8i series: Zeiss Victory V8 1.1-8x24, Zeiss Victory V8 1.8-14x50 T*, Zeiss Victory V8 2.8-20x56 T*, Zeiss Victory V8 2.8-20x56 T* and Zeiss Victory V8 4.8-35x60.
The Victory V8 2.8-20x56 is Zeiss' top-of-the-line riflescope with a magnification that ranges from 2.8 to 20 and an objective lens of 56 millimeters. It is 35 centimeters long, weighs 830 grams, and features a 30mm main tube diameter rare in hunting scopes; it offers 3.1 meters of internal elevation per hundred meters, has a fast focus diopter setting, and offers a great eye box and forgiving position behind the scope.
The Victory V8 2.8-20x56 rifle has two reticle options, Reticle 43 and Reticle 60. The reticles are illuminated and thin at high magnifications, with the dot spanning no more than four millimeters.
The V8 2.8-20x56 has an adjustable dot-illumination system that is the smallest on the market and covers a four-millimeter area at a distance of 100 meters. The illumination can be turned on and off using a button and is equipped with a motion sensor to turn it off when not in use. The intensity of the illuminated dot can be set to any desired level, making it ideal for bright days or low-light conditions and easy to use when wearing gloves.
Zeiss Victory V8 2.8-20x56 scopes can be outfitted with either standard hunting or ASV long-range turrets. The ASV turret is superior due to its 100 clicks per turn, which allows for longer-range shooting than other ballistic hunting turrets.
Zeiss provides nine different ballistic rings with their scope. These rings can be used to set a direct dial system from 100-600 meters and can come with either an elevation ASV long-range turret or both elevation and windage turrets with a locking mechanism. No additional rings are included for the windage turret if ordering both turrets.
The V8 2.8-20x56 has a parallax adjustment that can be adjusted from 50 meters to infinity, with 100-meter increments for each click.
The Victory V8 2.8-20x56 riflescope offers outstanding optics, with a light transmission rate of 92% and an impressive field of view. It's the second biggest model in the Z8i series and provides almost 16 meters of view at 100 meters. The smaller 1.8-14x50 model offers even more, with 23 meters of view.
The Victory V8 2.8-20x56 scope by Zeiss has HD and FL glass elements, which are covered with the LotuTec and T* coatings to protect the lens from water droplets, dirt, fogging, and condensation while giving users extraordinary optical clarity, performance, resolution, and sharpness.
The Zeiss ZM/VM rail mount must be purchased separately to attach the scope to a mounting solution. Otherwise, 30-millimeter scope mount rings will be necessary.
