The ZEISS VICTORY V8 owes its outstanding image quality and optical resolution to its 36mm tube design and its unique fluoride lenses HT glass system. This phenomenal optical concept offers unrivalled low light performance, taking aiming accuracy to a new standard. All external lenses are protected by LotuTec coating for easy cleaning and clear visibility in any weather situation. The V8 combines extreme zoom range and the brightest optics to make the ultimate all-purpose riflescope for all distances and situations. Whether it’s a western long range spot and stalk hunt, sitting in a treestand, competing for a 3-gun championship or just shooting at the range, the ZEISS VICTORY V8 super-zoom riflescopes enable fast reaction time and flexibility – all designed to ensure the maximum shooting experience.
“Carl Zeiss has set a new standard once again,” said Joel Harris, Head of Global Public Relations, Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “The VICTORY V8 riflescopes are the finest, highest-performance riflescopes on the market today and once you’ve looked through one, you’ll see why. We stand alone at this class level, there is nothing comparable. Never before has a ZEISS riflescope been more sharply focused on performance and elegance than the VICTORY V8. The first time you look through the V8, you’ll realize that such image quality and resolution simply cannot be matched. It is an optical masterpiece full of innovation, providing a totally new user experience.”
The VICTORY V8 unites the latest technologies including the new ASV bullet drop compensator which is considered the most intuitive and precise long-range shooting solution in the world. The 36mm tube diameter provides a substantial benefit to those users who need a larger range of adjustment for long range hunting shots. A fiber optical light system thinner than a human hair provides the finest illuminated dot in the world, resulting in 3 millimeter subtension coverage at 100 yards. The result is pure precision with the smallest targets at the greatest distance.
The multifunction illumination button on the ZEISS VICTORY V8 line is the most advanced illumination control system on the market. It can be quickly, silently and intuitively operated even with gloves on.
Another stroke of genius from ZEISS: the integrated intelligent motion sensor. The illuminated dot is automatically deactivated as soon as you put the rifle down. It reactivates as soon as you take aim – a feature that saves time and energy. The illumination intensity can be continuously adjusted via an easy-to-use, low-profile control wheel optimally positioned on the top of the eyepiece ,which can be comfortably operated in full silence.
