Zeiss Shipping DiaScope15-56x/20-75x Eyepiece in Early 2011

CHESTER, VA1 – The long awaited 15-56x / 20-75x eyepiece for the award-winning ZEISS Victory DiaScope T* FL Spotting Scopes has finally arrived. First announced at the 2010 SHOT Show, this highly versatile eyepiece offers the widest range of power on the market today and, combined with the newly designed DiaScope, provides a visual experience unlike any other.

The eyepiece functions as a 15-56x on the 65mm DiaScope models and 20-75x on the 85mm DiaScopes. Both models come in straight or angled bodies and feature a revolutionary Dual Speed Focus System (DSF) that combines both the fast and fine focus in a single control. You simply have to try it yourself to believe the speed and flexibility this gives you in the field. This one focus wheel allows you to easily control both the ultra-precise and rapid focusing without changing your grip. The focus is ultra-precise when the focusing wheel is turned back and forth slowly around the point of best focus. The rapid focusing, which is five times faster, is automatically activated when the focus wheel is turned more than 270°. To see a video of how this focus system works, see zeiss.com/sports.

Additional enhancements to the DiaScope include a new, sleek rubber-armored exterior for improved feel and protection of the highly durable magnesium/aluminum housing, and the DiaScope’s optical performance is exceptional. Its FL lens system was engineered to produce superior image quality – extremely detailed, sharp, brilliant, true-color images, even in challenging lighting and weather situations – and also features an advanced stray light reduction system which virtually eliminates contrast-reducing stray light.

Carl Zeiss‘ redesign of the DiaScope has been a homerun with those who love the finest in nature observation as is evidenced by the many awards won: 2010 Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award, 2010 Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Award, 2010 Field & Stream Best of the Best Award and 2010 international Red Dot Design Award.

Eyepieces for the new DiaScopes are also available in the Vario 15-45x / 20-60x and Vario 30x / 40x models. All DiaScopes are waterproof and nitrogen filled. They also come with Carl Zeiss’ award-winning LotuTec® water repellant coating and feature a new bayonet locking system that securely locks the eyepieces onto the body of the scope yet still allows for quick and easy changing. Accessories include an ultra-functional carrying case featuring an AirCell carrying strap with quick-release fasteners for ready use at a moments notice.

Carl Zeiss also offers a new aluminum tripod set for the DiaScopes with a state-of-the-art Photo/Video Head for quick and easy observation and photography. The tripod’s rugged leg set ensures stability in the field and is easy to adjust for all of your observation needs.

“The DiaScope is superior in sharpness, focus, zoom and armored construction. When I tested for waterproofness, it floated. I could judge buck antelope miles away with it on a cloudy day. The cost can be made up in saved boot leather. – T.M.”

Petersen’s Hunting Magazine Names ZEISS DiaScope Editor’s Choice

Zeiss CHESTER, VIRGINIA – The new Victory DiaScope 85mm spotting scope from Carl Zeiss has been named Editor’s Choice by the staff of Petersen’s Hunting. The 2010 Spotting Scope Review, featured in the magazine’s September issue, compared spotting scopes from numerous manufacturers and the new ZEISS DiaScope, with its revolutionary Dual Speed Focus (DSF) system, beat out the competition as the top pick. Here’s what they had to say:

“The DiaScope features fluoride glass and a protective LotuTec lens coating to shed water, dirt and other optical result-robbing debris. We put this scope through its paces, and all the way to the 60x the images were bright and Beefeater-clear. The innovative Dual Speed Focus (DSF) system is something you almost have to try to believe. It automatically transfers from macro-adjustment to fine-tuning like no other scope. This is our pick of the litter, price be damned. $2,999; zeiss.com/sports.”

The DiaScope is available in 65mm or 85mm models, straight or angled, and the newly designed eyepieces include the Vario D 15-56x / 20-75x, the most powerful and versatile eyepiece on the market today.
