The ZEISS Victory® SF binoculars allow you to experience the most exciting hunting moments as never before. The optical perfection, the unparalleled field of view, the revolutionary ergonomics and the ultra-light design make this model the best all-purpose binoculars ever built by ZEISS. Experience the ZEISS Victory SF family as the most versatile premium binoculars in the company’s 170-year history.

A large field of view is essential for spotting game as it enables you to cover large areas faster and to see small movements at the edge of the viewing field. Thanks to the combination of the ErgoBalance concept and its optimal weight distribution the ZEISS SF 32 is the perfect companion for stalk hunting.

8x42 stands for a maximum overview and fascinating, highcontrast images. With a field of view of 148 m/1,000 m, the 8x42 delivers the largest possible overview and leaves nothing undiscovered. At moderate magnification, it enables long observations with unparalleled steady images. The uniquely large fields of view and the revolutionary handling make these binoculars a perfect companion when a fast overview is vital in uneven terrain.

The 10x42 provides maximum detail recognition and is perfectly suited for eventful observations at long distances. The field of view of 120 m/1,000 m at 10x magnification is a dream come true for many people. The 10x magnification delivers unexpected precision and crystal-clear details. The ErgoBalance concept enables steady handling despite the high magnification.

90% Light Transmission

The Ultra-FL Concept is containing several SCHOTT fluoride glasses for absolute color fidelity, brightness, clarity and the finest resolution of details, even in the harshest conditions and most challenging environment.

Extremely wide field of view

The incomparably broad field of view of both SF models provides a perfect overview in difficult terrain and their close focus distances of 1.95 meters (SF 32) and 1.5 meters (SF 42) allow the exploration of even the smallest details.

An exceptional viewing experience

Natural, true-to-life color rendition, a bright viewing image and finest resolution of details. The UFL concept delivers them all. In the Ultra-FL Concept, several elements made of SCHOTT fluoride glass are combined in a system that delivers absolute color fidelity, brightness, high contrast and the finest resolution of details.

Rapid focusing

The outstanding SmartFocus concept allows you to respond as quickly and intuitively thanks to the improved focusing speed.  The focusing wheel is positioned in the triple-link bridge to allow for a comfortable, natural hand position.  The anti-slip surface allows for easier, more precise operation and ideal focusing with a maximum of only 1.6 or 1.8 turns (depending on model).

ZEISS T* Coating

ZEISS T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images­­ which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.

ErgoBalance Concept

Thanks to the ErgoBalance Concept, the binoculars are ideally balanced in the hands and enable prolonged and steady observation with minimum fatigue by reducing stresses on the muscles of the upper and lower arms.

A clear view, whatever the weather

There are always exciting things to be seen in the world of nature – even in wet weather. This is why ZEISS developed LotuTec®. A coating for the lenses of binoculars and spotting scopes that enables a clear and unhindered view in all weather conditions.
