The Zeiss Victory HT 8x42 binoculars have the new High Transmission (HT) Schott glass which achieve a massive 95% light transmission! ZEISS HT – innovative optical design with HT lenses by SCHOTT - represents a light transmission capability that was previously unheard of. It was developed for use when hunting, to ensure that critical details can still be seen even in the deepest twilight. The new SCHOTT HT lenses also have all the benefits of the FL models, such as fluoride lenses for maximum image sharpness and colour correction, advanced T* coatings, inverting prisms with low light capability and the LotuTec® coating for clear visibility whatever the weather. However, the real advantage lies in the fact that these lenses, with their unrivalled brightness, have set new standards, with more than 95% in the field of light transmission.
Innovative optical concept:
Unrivalled brightness, thanks to a light transmission of up to more than 95% - this unique result is created by the innovative optical concept of the VICTORY HT range. It is made possible by the perfect interplay of SCHOTT® HT glass, the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and the Abbe-König prism system. This innovative, high-performance package will enable you to enjoy the true majesty of nature, even in poor light conditions.
Top quality user ergonomics – that is the promise of the new Comfort Focus Concept focussing wheel. The strikingly large focussing wheel is set a long way forwards on the bridge. You will be aware of the benefits the very first time you use the binoculars. The focussing wheel lies below your index finger, your thumbs gently grip the barrels while the remaining three fingers rest easily next to your index finger. You will no longer have to think about how to hold the binoculars. The particularly long gearing of the focussing wheel allows you to focus on your target quickly and accurately.
Extreme robust Double-Link-Bridge:
The extremely robust construction offers the very highest levels of precision and durability. The housing, with its innovative double-link bridge, is made of high-tensile, ultra-light magnesium. The focussing wheel is securely embedded in the housing. This means that the VICTORY HT is perfectly equipped for use even in the most extreme conditions.
Brilliant FL concept:
Make the most of the full richness of colour and brilliance. The outstanding lens construction, using lenses made of high-performance fluoride glass - FL for short - helps you to see the colours with more brilliance and natural authenticity. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum.
Water simply rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf or off a duck's back. The LotuTec®coating on the lens and eyepiece ensures that water or snow simply roll off the surface of the glass. Since neither water nor dirt can collect on the surface of the VICTORY HT you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.
Designed for perfection:
The elegant and ergonomic design makes the VICTORY HT binoculars far easier to use. The particularly slim construction of the double-link bridge and an extremely large grip on the lens barrels make these binoculars exceptionally natural and easy to handle. This ensures smooth imaging in any situation, however they are held. In this way the design supports the highest standards of perfect visual experiences.
