ZEISS 524224-0000-000 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for birders and nature enthusiasts, the 10x42 Victory SF T* Binocular from ZEISS provides an immersive observational experience by combining exceptional optics, a powerful magnification, and a wide field of view in a lightweight and durable housing. Extra-low dispersion fluoride lenses, fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected prisms work together to create images that are clear and bright without distortion across the entire field of view, while colors are accurately represented with high contrast and resolution. The binocular's 10x magnification and wide 65° apparent angle of view provide expansive views, while the exceptionally short 5' close-focus distance enables you to make detailed observations of insects and small birds on flowers or feeders.

The optical precision starts with SCHOTT Ultra-FL extra-low dispersion (ED) fluoride (FL) lenses that virtually eliminate distortion and chromatic aberration while increasing contrast and color fidelity. The Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms are coated with ZEISS' P* phase-correcting coatings to limit light loss and increase color fidelity and contrast. All of the optics are fully multi-coated with ZEISS' anti-reflection T* coatings. These greatly reduce light loss and maximize light transmission to create bright and clear images. A seven-lens eyepiece system uses high-transmission glass and field flatteners to correct for spherical aberrations to allow for pinpoint focusing across the entire field of view.

This SF version of the Victory binoculars features the Smart Focus system. Unlike conventional focusing wheels that require users to turn the knobs as many as 2.5 times to transition from the minimum to the maximum focus distance, the SF system only requires 1.8 turns. This means faster and easier changes of your subjects without sacrificing focus precision. The binocular is designed with ergonomic balance to reduce the feel of the weight in the hand, which reduces user fatigue for comfortable viewing during long observation sessions.

The housing is made from a lightweight, durable, and strong magnesium alloy. A double-hinged, open-bridge design provides a larger surface area for gripping while reducing the overall weight even more. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance, giving it a waterproof rating to 400mbar of pressure.

    10x42 Victory SF T* Binocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I waited for my retirement to reach for the best optics I have ever owned. I have used optics in conservation law enforcement for many years and many products were called, rugged, waterproof, easy to use and other adjectives that hit close to the mark. The only adjective I did not experience was excellent. The Zeiss 10X40 Victory SF T* is the absolute best pair of binoculars that I have ever used professionally and during my down time. They are razor sharp and very bright in low light conditions. I look forward to many years of use in my retirement watching wildlife and nature observation. Excellent product and well worth the wait.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but expensive I upgraded from a Nikon Superior E. Much better view and sharper image. For the price, I expected an even better view. No chromatic issues. Click stops on eyepieces are a little wimpy and I will never need 4 stops. When I first looked into the binocs, horrible view with tunnel vision till I backed out the eyecap one stop. Wished there were not so many stops, as sometimes, the eyecap retracts and have to readjust. Well made body, except for seam on the rubber exposed on each barrel. Seems cheap and a potential wear point. Front eyecap teathered to the body with a very cheap string. Case is nice, but not enough room for binocs and neck strap. Magnetic catch on the case won't reach far enough to latch when neck strap pushed into case. I might return this brand and try the Swarovski El...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb binoculars I was looking for binoculars for birding. My previous pair was a Nikon Monarch 7. I tried Swarovski, Leica and these Zeiss. The Zeiss stood out from the other two in both image clarity and comfort in my hand. The image clarity, brightness and color are truly remarkable. I doubt I will ever need another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zeiss 10x42 High quality as expected at this price. Had problem figuring out best way to attach neck strap and caps. No instructions for that. Very good packaging. Easy to adjust focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable clarity These really are the best binoculars on the market.� Clarity is outstanding and makes viewing a completely immersive experience. Weight balance is towards the face, which makes holding these up feel like they're weightless.� Extremely pleased with this purchase.� While it's expensive, you absolutely get what you pay for and I couldn't be happier.
