Zeiss' 10x42 Victory T* FL binocular, available in two colors, is the epitome of optical excellence. From any measurement of greatness it succeeds admirably, a tool bereft of weakness which becomes so intuitive with use as functionally to disappear from the user's mindset. This should be the goal of any binocular-to be the invisible conduit to great viewing of the subject.
The optics within the 10x42 Victory T* FL binocular were created with 'elements of abnormal partial dispersion', a chunk of gobbledygook easily translated to an observer as the theoretical limit of razor-sharp imagery free of color shift or chromatic aberration, the dreaded bane of bargain binoculars. When focusing on a flat subject, the image is as sharp at the edges of the enormous viewing field as it is at the center. The broad focusing range goes from end to end in just a single rotation of the center focus dial, which also houses the dioptric correction.
The 10x42 Victory T* FL, like all ultra-premium European crafted binoculars, is not for the frugally minded. It is instead a product intentionally designed to deliver awe-inspiring optical and mechanical brilliance. For many, the anticipated lifelong performance from such a device quickly amortizes its high initial investment.
