Zeiss Sports Optics Announces The World’s Brightest Binocular


Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance sports optics is pleased to announce their latest technical masterpiece to the already renowned VICTORY binocular line, the new VICTORY HT 54. The 8×54 mm and 10×54 mm binoculars are as light and compact as most 50 mm models, but brighter than any standard 56 mm on the market. The new and unique lens diameter reduces the weight by 20% and delivers images brighter than ever before thanks to the revolutionary HT glass concept.

“Again ZEISS redefines the standard for optical performance with the new HT 54 mm models,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “Carl Zeiss is the leader in hunting and observation optics with cutting-edge products that will have a major impact on increasing our ever-growing market share.”

Both models, the 8×54 and 10×54, deliver an industry leading 95% light transmission for longer observation, achieved with SCHOTT High Transmission (HT) glass, enhanced ZEISS T* multi-coating and Abbe-König prism system. The integrated FL concept delivers amazing crisp and vivid images; LotuTec® protective coating ensures clear visibility in rain or snow. The extremely robust, double-link bridge made of super-light magnesium guarantees maximum mechanical precision and service life, even under the most compromising conditions. VICTORY HT 54 are lightweight and feature an ergonomically advanced design that allows users to comfortably hold the binoculars steady and focus, even with gloves on. VICTORY HT Binoculars are backed by ZEISS’ industry-leading 5 year No Fault Policy and a limited lifetime transferable warranty.
