Product Highlights
  • Integral Laser Rangefinder - 1200 yd
  • Ballistic Information System - BIS
  • LotuTec Water-Repellent Coating
  • T* Multicoated Lenses
  • Waterproof
  • Fogproof

The lightweight and easy to use Victory 8x26 T* PRF Rangefinding Monocular is a laser rangefinder that delivers optical excellence, precise distance information, and accurate ballistics data.

As a viewing monocular, the PRF is simply outstanding. The lenses feature T* multicoating and Zeiss' protective LotuTec coating for optimum viewing in any conditions. The rugged polycarbonate housing is nitrogen filled and sealed to prevent internal fogging and to ensure waterproof performance. The styling is designed for two-handed use, much like a binocular. This method of handling offers a stable and comfortable viewing experience.

Covering distances up to 1200 yd/ 1300 m, the Victory PRF's laser rangefinding system is accurate to ±1 yd/m up to 600 yd / 650 m. At longer distances it is accurate within 0.5%. Measurements can be taken in yards or meters, and the scanning mode is ideal for moving subjects.

The PRF's one-touch measuring button activates the invisible IR laser - within a fraction of a second the illuminated LED readout display is visible in the field of view. An automatic sensor adjusts the display's brightness to adapt to ambient lighting conditions for maximum clarity at all times.

The BIS (Ballistic Information System) works with the laser rangefinder to determine the proper hold-over for specific centerfire cartridges. When the BIS is engaged, two measurements will be seen in rapid succession. The first reading will show the distance to the target, the second will indicate the holdover.

        Comments about Zeiss Victory 8x26 T* PRF Rangefinding Monocular:

        I purchased this rangefinder to estimate targets in the Nevada desert. During my research I compared this unit to the Leica CRF 1000. Optically, I think that the Leica had a slight edge, but the somewhat larger objective and higher magnification of the Zeiss is what sold me on it. Additionally, although I treat my gear well, I felt that the rubberized shell of the Zeiss would hold up better in the long run versus the aluminum housing of the Leica. Each unit ranges targets quickly and accurately. I have only had the opportunity to use mine out to 600 yards, but other reviews I've read are quite favorable out to 1200+. Pricewise, you can't beat the Zeiss. After the rebate I was able to purchase the Zeiss for [$]shipped from B&H. THe customer service and speed in which I received the product was great as usual. Buy with confidence!!

              Use for range finding while hunting. Quick readings. Intuitive to use. Lighter than I expected. Nice Case. Requires two hands to steady for long distances- due to horizontal construction I would guess. I ave not tried ballistic programs, but simple setting based on ballistic of bullet you shoot.

              Comments about Zeiss Victory 8x26 T* PRF Rangefinding Monocular:

              As the story always goes, you really do get what you pay for, and the Zeiss 8x26 rangefinder is certainly no exception to that rule. Crystal clear optics, very long ranging ability and almost instantaneous ranging results makes for a very useful tool. The self adjusting red LED display makes it easy to read in any lighting condition, even on pitch black nights,(yes it will range at night) I ranged a distant familiar tree line, over 600 yards through a double pane window at 11:00 pm. Though not as compact and full of features as the Leica 1600 the Zeiss 8x26 has features the leica does not. I very much like the range upon release feature as it is almost impossible to hold a cross-hair on a long distance small target and press a button. The Zeiss works best if held by two hands which is not great for bowhunting situations, but I have more compact short rangefinders for that. For my application the Zeiss 8x26 is strictly long range tool, and for that they work perfectly. A tripod socket would be nice to aid in long distance work, but so far I have had no real problems ranging automobile size targets over a 1000 yds freehand and deer sized targets at 1000 yds when bracing myself against a solid object. During a recent antelope hunt the Zeiss helped me freehand range a nice buck at 754.yds. After adjusting the MKIV on my 300 ultra mag, I was able to place the first shot right into the bioler room. Simply put, if you want high quality, reliability and true long ranging ability for a bargain price the Zeiss 8x26 Rangefinder is very fine choice.

                Comments about Zeiss Victory 8x26 T* PRF Rangefinding Monocular:

                I primarily use this rangefinder for long-range shooting in the field. For this purpose, it's hard to imagine a better rangefinder. For one thing, it ranges accurately out to 1,200 yards. I've even gotten a reading at 1,450 yards! The readings are very quick as well, which is nice. The only things I think are missing are a tripod mounting hole for range use, and a scan mode like the Nikon 1200. The optical quality is good as would be expected for a Zeiss product.
