  • Features

    Brilliant FL-concept

    Make the most of the full richness of colour and brilliance in the world of birds. 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 and to observe details such as plumage more clearly. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum. Important details, such as a bird's eyebrow stripe, are shown as nature intended them to be seen, while colours and shapes are clearly defined.

    Best visibility both near and far

    Search for a songbird in a bush just a few metres away or look into the distance to watch a passing bird of prey. Enjoy outstanding images from the Victory FL binoculars at any distance, near or far. The wide angle field of view makes it easier for you to seek out birds, even at short distances. At long range, the wide angle field of view gives you a wonderful overview; for example of roosting cranes or passing birds of prey.

    Robust lightweight

    The lightweight design and compact dimensions make the Victory FL binoculars the ideal companion for nature observation and birdwatching. Whether you are birdwatching in the rainforest, in the desert, out on the icecap or in more temperate zones, the high-quality materials used in the construction of these binoculars will withstand even the most extreme conditions. The Victory FL binoculars are waterproof and filled with nitrogen, so that even extreme changes in temperature will not cause them to mist up internally. The rubber armour makes these binoculars extremely robust and shockproof, and provides reliable protection for the delicate optics.

    Effortless operation

    The easily accessible focussing wheel makes it possible to change your focus in a fraction of a second from a seagull in the distance to a sandpiper on the beach close by. Even with gloves on, the non-slip focussing wheel is easy to operate with its integrated diopter adjustment, which can be locked in the required position. The eyecups can be screwed into your preferred position, so that at all times you can keep the right distance between your eyes and the eyepiece. The eyecups can also be removed completely for cleaning purposes.

    Low light capability thanks to Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating

    You will really notice the difference on dark autumn days or when watching owls in the spring. The unique Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating, ensures that plenty of light comes through the lenses in all Carl Zeiss binoculars. This enables you to watch birds with unrivalled clarity and brightness in twilight, dark weather conditions and in the interplay of light and shade found in woodland.

    Innovative lens coating

    Water simply rolls off the lens as if from a duck's back. This is due to the LotuTec® coating on the lens and eyepiece. The fact that water simply rolls off and no dirt can collect on the surface of the lenses means that you can spend less time cleaning and more time birdwatching.

  • Models

    You can choose between two different Victory FL models.

     

     

    Victory 8x56 T* FL

    They make the best use of the light, no less than any of the other binoculars from the Victory FL range. The large lens diameter means that they are perfectly suited for birdwatching in bright moonlight. Thanks to the wide field of view of 130 m at 1000 m with the 8x magnification they are also an excellent choice for watching early songbirds, such as nightingales.
