About Zeiss

The Victory Compact 8x20 fits into a shirt or jacket pocket and it delivers breathtaking views. When critical observation of near and distant surroundings is a must, the Victory 10x25 glides seamlessly into action. This lightweight powerhouse boasts cutting-edge optical technology that ensures optimized light transmission and a breathtaking field of view.

The optical path features phase-corrected Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms with dielectric mirror coatings. Ground to perfection, these prisms maximize acuity and light throughput while eliminating aberrations and distortion. The lenses are fully multicoated with Zeiss' legendary T* anti-reflective multicoating and LotuTec protective coating. T* multicoating increases light transmission while negating the negative effects of flare and glare. LotuTec coating helps maintain the integrity of each external lens surface by repelling liquids and debris for a clear view in any conditions, weather, or situation.

The Compact Victory's housing is quite robust - it's reinforced with glass fibers and covered with an anti-slip rubber armoring. A fog-resistant fill of bone-dry nitrogen ensures clear viewing in dynamic climates and the entire system is sealed for absolute waterproof performance. The hinge is offset - this affords a visibly unique and compact form-factor that is easy to adjust. Focusing is managed with a dial on the hinge and a pair of soft twist-up rubber eyecups offer a comfortable custom fit.

Great compact binocular

By

from Ann Arbor,MI  -  Casual/ Recreational

When I was searching for a compact binocular, I want one with top quality, relatively reasonable price and great image. I was comparing the top compact ones from Leica, Zeiss, Nikon. I gave up Leica and Nikon because of the duel hinge bridge. I feel duel hinge binoculars are hard to handle. The only thing I worried about was the 14mm eye relief. It might be a problem for me since I do wear glasses all the time. After I got this binocular, I felt I worried too much. This binocular is amazing. I can see through the binocular easily with my glass, it's not a problem for me at all. The image is sharp and clear. Honestly, It's way beyond my expectation.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Anyone own the Zeus victory compact 8x20 binoculars? Are worth the money?
TOM J  These glasses are absolutely top quality. You just have to ask yourself the value question: How much am I actually going to use these? I think they are best suited for close and mid-range viewing because they really bring out the detail and a great "close up" view. Bird watching, trips to the zoo, etc. I use mine often to scope out potential wildlife and landscape photo ops because these are light weight and easy to maneuver when carrying a camera and related equipment. Frankly, unless you have previous experience with this type of binoccular, I would suggest you start with a $35 pair and see if you find yourself using them enough, and needing or wanting a higher quality view. If you decide to upgrade a Zeiss like this can't be beat.
