    With optics designed for nature lovers, view the most breathtaking moments with high precision and unmatched clarity.

    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.

    Because, for birders, the aim is to find and observe even the most secretive birds for periods long enough to enable clear identification on the basis of the beauty of their details. The extremely broad field of view, true-to-life colour rendition and unique ergonomics of the Zeiss Victory SF 8x42 Binoculars make them ideal for capturing such moments.


    Extremely Wide Field of View

    With birds often hiding in dense cover, it’s essential that you have a wide field of view (FOV) 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. The Zeiss Victory SF 8x42 Binoculars have a field of view of 148m at 1km.


    UFL Concept

    Compromises cannot be made when it comes to birdwatching – 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 UFL Concept maximises optical performance so that you can 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 is the reason why ZEISS Victory SF binoculars are constructed with a uniquely ergonomic design. The SmartFocus feature offers a perfectly positioned focusing wheel that enables fast and precise focusing, and 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.


    Comfortable Discoveries

    The lightweight (790g) design and unique ErgoBalance-Concept prevents exhaustion, even after days in the outdoors.
