Zeiss Victory SF 32, an expansion of Zeiss Victory SF line of binoculars featuring an exceptionally wide field of view

The focus wheel of the Zeiss Victory SF 32 has a gear ratio of 1.6 revolutions. This creates the optimum balance between fast and precise focusing.

Zeiss, one of the world's leading manufacturers of optical instruments, made no compromises when expanding its line of Victory SF binoculars. A wider field of view, more color accuracy and optimized ergonomics – this is what the new binoculars offer. Hunters who don't want to make any compromises even during long viewing periods – when stalking, from a high seat or during mountain hunting – have the right companion at hand with the Zeiss Victory SF 32.“Every passionate hunter and bird-watcher knows that extraordinary moments outdoors sometimes take time to reveal their full potential,” explains Tammo Lüken, head of product management for nature observation and hunting at Zeiss. That is why they need binoculars that are compact, lightweight, and at the same time, offer outstanding clarity. “With its exceptionally wide field of view and perfect ergonomics, the Zeiss Victory SF 32 helps hunters and nature observers pursue their passion – even when you hold your binoculars in your hands during prolonged periods of observation,” Lüken concludes.

The ErgoBalance Concept of the Zeiss Victory SF 32 shifts weight towards the eyepiece. This also allows longer, fatigue-free observation.

Wide field of view – A major advantage of the SF 32

The Zeiss Victory SF 32 offers an extraordinarily wide field of view, setting new standards in the optical range up to 155 m. To adjust the focusing wheel from infinity to the minimum focusing distance of 1.95 m just 1.6 revolutions are needed, an ideal balance between fast and precise focusing. Already well-known from the Zeiss SF line of binoculars, the Zeiss Victory SF 32 also features the "ErgoBalance Concept", in which the centre of gravity is shifted towards the eyepiece, making hunting and long-term observation particularly easy, ergonomic and fatigue-free. The binoculars are equipped with the "Ultra-FL Concept" developed by Zeiss, a system of fluoride-containing SCHOTT lenses that reduces color fringing while increasing contrast and guaranteeing the highest color imaging quality.

The Victory SF 32 line from Zeiss is available in 8x32 and 10x32.

Zeiss experience and development with experts

The Zeiss SF line is the result of close cooperation between Zeiss engineers and experts in the field of hunting and birdwatching. The Zeiss Victory SF 8x42 and the Zeiss Victory SF 10x42 allow for an excellent clarity as well as rapid visual recognition even in poor lighting conditions. The Zeiss Victory SF 32 now completes this line with its exceptionally wide field of view. The Zeiss Victory SF 8x32 and 10x32 will be available from specialist retailers from May 2020.
