The 8x42 Victory HT Binocular from Zeiss combines world class optics with innovative engineering and precise construction. The superb performance and characteristic durability that industry professionals and nature enthusiasts have come to depend on from Zeiss optics are embodied by the Victory HT series binoculars.

Zeiss' Victory HT series introduces their proprietary High Transmission (HT) optical concept that delivers an unmatched 95 percent light transmission. Premium Schott glass elements are multicoated with Zeiss T* coatings, maximizing light transmission through the entire optical channel. The ultra-reflective Abbe-Koenig prism design complements the HT glass, resulting in an image that is exceptionally bright and rich with contrast, clarity, and detail.

This model of the Victory HT is configured with 8x magnification, suitable for intermediate to long-range glassing in the field, at the range, or on the trail. The nitrogen purged magnesium housing, Dual-Link bridge construction, and ergonomic non-slip rubber focus wheel make the Victory HT a full-featured optic ready for all seasons. Whether you are a dedicated bird watcher, tactical professional, or demanding hunter, the Victory HT is a premium binocular that raises the standard for precision and durability.

High Transmission (HT) Elements
The latest optical concept from Zeiss includes innovative high transmission fluoride glass elements from Schott that achieve an unrivaled light transmission value of 95 percent or more. This advantage is clearly visible across the entire 62° apparent viewing angle, even in low-light conditions.
T* Multicoated Optics
Multi-layer Zeiss T* coatings are used on all of their premium sport optics. The coating effectively eliminates reflections throughout the optical channel and faithfully transmits the entire color spectrum while preserving edge sharpness.
LotuTec Protective Coating
Objective and ocular lenses are coated with the renowned LotuTec moisture/abrasion-resistant coating. This protects the exposed lens from rain, snow, and humidity by causing the moisture to bead up and roll off the surface. In addition to maintaining a clear and bright image, this coating also makes removing dirt and dust from lens surfaces both quick and safe.
Comfort-Focus Wheel
Ergonomic wheel placement and deep ribs allow precise manual focusing. A supple yet durable rubber exterior also enables slight focus adjustments in wet conditions even while wearing gloves.
Double-Link Bridge
Both optical channels are perfectly aligned via the Dual-Link bridge. This minimalist design feature reduces weight from the body while maintaining a robust feel and balancing the binocular from front to back.

        Comments about Zeiss 8x42 Victory HT Binocular:

        After a month of research to find the perfect pair of Binoculars for my husband's 60 birthday I choose the 8 X 42 Victory HT Binocular by Zeiss.The smile on his face was worth 1,000 words. By husband is a serious bird watcher and he would always say,"My binoculars are not quite strong enough". Well, needless to say I will not be hearing that again. These Binoculars are crystal clear and the viewing at dusk is amazing! These are well worth the price and the smile on my husband's face was priceless!

        Use mostly for birding, need good detail. Worried that it would be too heavy since I am small. Clarity is so wonderful, especially in bad light, that I didn't even think about the weight.

          Comments about Zeiss 8x42 Victory HT Binocular:

          The Zeiss Victory HT 8x42 are great birding binoculars. I have had my pair for two weeks and have used them a number of times in varying conditions. They are very sharp with excellent contrast, very bright (especially when you peer into shadows), have no CA that I have been able to see, provide ample eye relief for me, have natural color transmission, and the ergonomics are outstanding. I compared these to the Swarovski 8x42 SVs, and the HTs just felt so much better in my hands. The focusing knob is easy to use, even with winter gloves and a baseball hat on.

          These are my first 42mm binoculars. I have the Victory FL 8x32, Swarovski 8x32 SV, and Nikon 8x32 SE (all great binoculars), but the HTs are now my favorite. The feel and ease of use combined with the excellent optics make the HTs my birding binoculars of choice. They really shine when you need to pull detail out of backlit birds or birds in shadows. The only downside is that they are about 8 ounces heavier that the 8x32s, but a good strap helps with that.
