ZEISS Wins Two Outdoor Life Top Honors For HT & HD Binoculars

 

NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA.- Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer in high performance sports optics, received two coveted Editor’s Choice Awards for the new VICTORY HT 10×42 and CONQUEST HD 8×32 in the Outdoor Life’s 2013 Gear Test. John Snow, Outdoor Life Shooting Editor, presented the Editor’s Choice Awards during the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas.

Outdoor Life’s optics tests were held in Montana this year, to determine the best new sports optics products for 2013. An independent panel of experts and hardcore hunters pushed each piece of glass to the limit evaluating optical quality, mechanical precision, ergonomics and low light performance. ZEISS is proud to announce that the VICTORY HT 10×42 binocular won the award for best full-size binoculars and the CONQUEST HD 8×32 earned the Editor’s Choice Award in the mid-size binocular category.

“This is an incredible day for ZEISS”, stated Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics USA. “The Outdoor Life’s optics test is the toughest in the industry. To earn a single Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award is an unbelievable accomplishment considering the level of competition, but to win BOTH binocular categories is a testament of how strong our product line has become”.

VICTORY HT 10×42 binoculars are the brightest super premium binoculars in the world with 95% light transmission or more. The innovative optical concept consists of SCHOTT HT high transmission glass, Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coatings, and an Abbe-König-prism resulting in a set of binoculars that has unrivalled brightness and stunning clarity. New design features also include the revolutionary Comfort-Focus-Concept and the extremely robust Double-Link Bridge that will provide hunters with more durability and ergonomical comfort than other super premium binoculars.

CONQUEST HD 8×32 premium mid-priced binoculars are compact and lightweight, extremely durable, and ideal for archery hunting, rifle hunting, hiking, travel and a multitude of other outdoor activities. The new HD lens system sets new standards in its class and provides exceptionally true and neutral color fidelity. The tried and true Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating ensures that the CONQUEST HD offers light transmission of more than 90%, making them optically competitive with other much higher priced super premium brands.

VICTORY HT and CONQUEST HD binoculars are backed by Carl Zeiss’ industry-leading 5 Year No-Fault Policy, in addition to the Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

ZEISS VICTORY HT 8×42 Binocular Wins Petersen’s Hunting Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Award

North Chesterfield, Va., August 7, 2012 – The new ZEISS VICTORY HT 8×42 binocular has been named Editor’s Choice by Petersen’s Hunting magazine.    The VICTORY HT is the brightest super-premium binocular in the world, with near 95% light transmission, and is the first binocular ever built specifically for hunters.    Zeiss engineers achieved this unprecedented level of light transmission by using proprietary SCHOTT High Transmission (HT) glass, a super-efficient Abbe-Koenig prism and newly enhanced proprietary ZEISS T* multi-layer coating.

Here is some of what the magazine had to say about the VICTORY HT binocular:

“For hunters, it may also be the most ergonomic as well, featuring a new, slower-focusing mechanism placed further forward to avoid hat brims and fit hands.  Editor Mike Schoby used them on a factory tour a few months back and described them as “the sharpest, brightest binoculars I’ve ever used.”  Before you upgrade your glass, I’d recommend checking out the Victory HT first.  $2,400.”

The rugged VICTORY HT has a wide natural field, with the highest possible center resolution, and is built for maximum durability.  Zeiss specifically created the high-grade magnesium Double-Link Bridge to fully protect the focus wheel and facilitate an almost effortless setting of the diopter control for the hunter’s individual vision.

“We are honored that the VICTORY HT binocular has been named Editor’s Choice by Petersen’s Hunting,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics.  “The Petersen’s Hunting staff, and its readers, are hard core hunters and that’s exactly who we designed this binocular for – the extreme hunter who needs the highest level of optical performance and durability.  We pushed ourselves, not only to exceed the light transmission level to date but in every aspect of the design and development process.   The recognition of our efforts is truly appreciated.”

Zeiss Introduces the Brightest Super-Premium Binocular in the World

CHESTER, Va., March 9, 2012 – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics introduces the all new VICTORY HT – the brightest super-premium binocular in the world, with near 95% light transmission. This is the first binocular ever specifically created by hunters to meet the unique needs of hunters in the field. Available in 8×42 and 10×42 models.

The brightest super-premium binocular in the world gives hunters a significant advantage by ensuring longer observation in the absolute lowest light conditions or in deep cover. This achievement requires new, proprietary SCHOTT High Transmission (HT) glass, a super-efficient Abbe-Koenig prism, and newly enhanced proprietary ZEISS T* multi-layer coating: only from Carl Zeiss Sports Optics.

The advanced ergonomics of the VICTORY HT are also unequalled. The large VICTORY HT focus wheel, part of the unique Comfort Focus system, is strategically placed toward the center of the binocular to remove strain on the focus finger and improve balance, creating a relaxed, comfortable grip – even with gloves. The forward placement of the focus knob in the Comfort Focus system also eliminates interference from the brim or bill of a hunter’s hat.

The VICTORY HT focus system itself is designed specifically for the hunter for precise, effortless use, providing useful focus speed while avoiding the finicky, drift-prone focus of competing models. It has a wide natural field, with the highest possible center resolution, and without the uncomfortable distortions or light loss of some flat-field competitors. This is a critical feature for hunters who need the sharpest image possible in order to make accurate assessments of game while glassing at extreme distances.

For durability and confidence in the field, Zeiss also created a high grade magnesium Double-Link Bridge: the first bridge to fully protect the focus wheel, eliminate the weak point found in competing models by connecting the bridge with two solid linked hinges, and facilitate a natural and almost effortless setting of the diopter control for the hunter’s individual vision. Intentionally separating focus and diopter controls also provides a smoother, more precise focus than any competing super-premium binocular.

“The Victory HT is designed for the extreme hunter who needs the highest level of optical performance and maximum durability,” said Michael A. Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “This is simply the brightest and the toughest hunting binocular ever made. It is an incredible product, and my challenge to any hunter is this: Do Not Buy any super-premium binocular until you Try the Victory HT – you will not be disappointed!”

The Victory HT will be on display for the first time in the United States at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in St. Louis, Missouri, April 13-15, 2012 and available in stores in the third quarter of 2012.

Victory 8×42 HT $2444
