First Look: Zeiss Victory HT 54 Binoculars
August 20, 2014
Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has introduced the new Zeiss Victory HT 54, the latest addition to their Victory binocular line. Offered in two models — 8x54mm and 10x54mm — the Victory HT 54 offers increased light transmission with a reduced overall weight.
Unlike other binoculars on the market, the Victory HT 54 utilizes a 54mm-lens diameter. This lens diameter makes the Victory HT 54 about as light and compact as most 50mm models, while maintaining imaging similar to standard 56mm binoculars.
Both the 8x54mm and 10x54mm binoculars feature SCHOTT High Transmission (HT) glass, enhanced Zeiss T multi-coating and a Abbe-KÖnig prism system, resulting in 95 percent light transmission. The Victory HT 54 also incorporates an integrated FL concept for crisp imaging, LotuTec protective coating to protect against inclement weather and a double-link bridge constructed of magnesium.
The Zeiss Victory HT 54 Binoculars are backed by Zeiss' 5 year No Fault Policy and a limited lifetime transferable warranty. The 8x54mm and 10x54mm binoculars are available for $2,722.21 and $2,777.77, respectively.
