With optics that let nature lovers find their targets faster, identify them more precisely and observe them for longer.
The binoculars of the ZEISS Victory SF family are specially designed and constructed for birders and wildlife watchers and are the first choice for anyone with a passion for the great outdoors.
Extremely wide field of view
With birds often hiding in dense cover, it’s essential that you have a wide field of view to allow you to spot any slight movements. The wide field of view of the ZEISS Victory SF binoculars increases the observable area of interest by up to 20% in comparison with other binoculars. Depending on the model, the field of view is between 120 m and 155 m, giving the user an impressive overview.
Compromises cannot be made when it comes to bird identification – fine details have to be recognised within seconds for an accurate and reliable identification. The ZEISS Victory SF family was developed to master the most demanding situations encountered in birdwatching. The optical performance was maximised with a UFL Concept. This allows the user to master the most demanding of bird-watching scenarios, ensuring every precious moment is captured with absolute clarity.
To fully enjoy some of nature’s most breathtaking moments, such as the beauty of migrating raptors above a hotspot, one key ingredient is needed above all: time. Long periods of observation are often necessary, meaning the ergonomics of your binoculars are essential. This the reason why ZEISS Victory SF binoculars are constructed with a uniquely ergonomic design. The SmartFocus Concept includes a perfectly positioned focusing wheel that enables fast and precise focusing even after many hours of observation (between 1.6 and 1.8 turns, depending on the model). In addition, the ErgoBalance Concept of the binoculars – with the centre of gravity being shifted closer to the user – ensures effortless observation over long periods of time, giving you more time to experience the many impressive moments that nature has to offer.
The light weight of 780g and unique ErgoBalance-Concept prevents exhaustion, even when spending days in the outdoors.
