Remarks:

Zeiss’ new series of range finding binoculars consists of the following models: 8×42, 10×42, 8×54 and 10×54. They all come in the same body design as the respective Victory HT Models (see separate posts) and share the excellent optics and sturdy mechanics with the latter. Hunters will appreciate the possibility to use the binocular together with a sophisticated smartphone app. In BINOCULARS TODAY’s experience, measurements of distances beyond 1’500 m and more are possible under most atmospheric conditions.
