From bird-watching and sightseeing, to game hunting and comet hunting, these refurbished 8x42 Victory SF Binocular from Zeiss provides an immersive observational experience by combining exceptional optics and a wide field of view in a lightweight and durable housing. Extra low-dispersion fluoride lenses, integrated field-flattener lenses, fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected prisms work together to create images that are sharp and bright without distortion across the entire field of view; while colors are accurately represented in high contrast and with superb resolution. The binocular's 8x magnification and wide 64° apparent angle of view provides 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.

This SF version of Victory binocular features the Smart Focus system. Unlike convention 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 adjustments when changing focus or tracking subjects without sacrificing focus precision. The binocular is designed with ergonomic balance to reduce the feel of the weight in the hand which lessens user fatigue for comfortable use 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.
