Remarks:

When in June 2014, Zeiss introduced the 10×42 model of their new Victory SF series, the announcement called the 120m / 1000m field of view “absolute top for a 10x binocular” – Zeiss might just have overlooked that Nikon’s E II 10×35 had an even wider field of view, 122m. The EII binoculars – the present 10×35 and the 8×30, see separate post (https://binocular.ch/nikon-e-ii-8×30/) – are among the very best handheld compact porro binoculars available today.
