Zeiss' 8x56 Victory T* FL Binocular 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 to functionally 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.  Its 8x56 configuration provides a compromise between a lower magnification with greater hand-holdability and a higher magnification but limited hand-held options.

The optics of the 8x56 Victory T* FL were created with elements of abnormal partial dispersion, a chunk of gobbledygook easily translating to the observer as the theoretical limit of razor sharp imagery free of color shift or chromatic aberration, the dreaded bane of bargain binoculars.  When focusing upon 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 8x56 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, and for many the lifetime of expected performance from such a device quickly amortizes its high initial investment.

question

I'm looking for the best binoculars to see at night. I have 10x42 el Swarovski that are best i have ever looked through.I looked through a pair of Zeiss conquest 8x56 that seem to gather more light than the swaros. I was wondering how much better would the Zeiss 8x42 HT would be?
Asked by: cecil c.
The ZEISS 8x42 Victory HT are no longer available. The reason you saw an increase in light because of the larger objective. The larger the objective the more light you get. Unfortunately we don't have any Zeiss 8x42 left. Only the ZE10X54TVHTB and ZE8X54TVHTB.
