ZEISS Victory V8 2.8-20x56mm Scope
The ZEISS Victory V8 2.8-20x56mm Scope allows for more opportunities at lower light levels. This model is easy to use and emits 92% light transmission to help ensure bright and high contrast images. The magnification range ensures long range shots are possible. This is the perfect match for even the highest performing rifles.
The Ultra-FL Concept is containing several SCHOTT fluoride glasses for absolute color fidelity, brightness, clarity and the finest resolution of details, even in the harshest conditions and most challenging environment. The multifunction button is the most advanced illumination control system on the market. It can be quickly, silently and intuitively operated even with gloves on. The illuminated dot is automatically deactivated as soon as you put the weapon down. It reactivates as soon as you take aim, a feature that saves time and energy.
The secret behind the precision of ZEISS scopes is their ultra fine illuminated dot and its extremely low target coverage. With only a fraction of the thickness of a human hair, the fibre optics system delivers the world’s finest illuminated dot – 3.3-millimetre target coverage at 100 metres is the breathtaking result (V8 & V6 @20x). Pure precision for the smallest targets and the greatest distances.

The world’s finest illuminated dot
The secret behind the precision of ZEISS scopes is the ultra fine illuminated dot and its extremely low target coverage. With only a fraction of the thickness of a human hair, the fibre optics system delivers the world’s finest illuminated dot – 3.3-millimetre target coverage at 100 metres is the breathtaking result (V8 & V6 @20x). Pure precision for the smallest targets and the greatest distances.
ZEISS T* Coating
ZEISS T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high contrast images which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.
A clear view, whatever the weather
There are always exciting things to be seen in the world of nature – even in wet weather. This is why ZEISS developed LotuTec. A coating for the lenses of binoculars and spotting scopes that enables a clear and unhindered view in all weather conditions.
Stable and Shot-Proof
The ZEISS V8, ZEISS Victory HT, ZEISS Conquest V6, and ZEISS Conquest V4 scopes are all ideally suited for use with “clip-on” attachments.
The most versatile scope
The combination of maximum zoom range, the brightest optics and optimal ease of use makes the Victory V8 from ZEISS the ultimate all purpose scope for all distances and situations – whether you are on a drive hunt, stalking or sitting game, or shooting at long range. Whatever your venture, the ZEISS Victory V8 – the company’s best super zoom scope – enables fast reactions and maximum flexibility – all designed to ensure surefire hunting success.
Water, water everywhere
After hours in the rain and cold, the hunter’s resolve remains to be tested to the end. To the end of what? The end of the rain, the end of the day, the end of the hunt? Rest assured, whatever your answer, ZEISS optics will be there with you, and waiting for the next time to go hunting in even tougher conditions.
Waterproofing immersion test
Water immersion test – Validated waterproof up to 13 feet for 2 hours
Abuse Vs Reward
Whether packing it in on a truck, on hoof and saddle, or on foot, the rough terrain demands the most of your equipment has to offer. Rest assured, just as your are able to withstand the bumps, bruises, and breaks from your hunt, your ZEISS gear will be there to take the punishment right along with you. And it will be there to help you obtain your reward of the harvest.*
Continuous shocks for 90 minutes
Continuous vibration test – Even after 1.5 hours of continuous vibration in various directions, upon repeating the shot test for accuracy, the grouping on the test target remains unchanged.
From the Sahara to the Arctic
Wherever your hunting adventures takes you, ZEISS knows the conditions are never very favorable. Optics and their mechanical counterparts must conform to the violent environmental shifts to be reliable and repeatable. Extreme heat and cold awaits the hunter around the globe. This is the time for performance – not excuses. ZEISS optics operate reliably in the most severe climatic conditions.
Extreme temperature shock test – ZEISS optics are tested by exposure to rapid temperature shocks from -13° F to 122° F within a period of 5 minutes.
Hard core hunting
ZEISS optics are high precision tools proven extremely reliable when exposed to the harshest salt water testing. All ZEISS optics are exhaustively tested to ensure their endurance and suitability for every condition your hunt and nature has to offer.
24 hours in salt spray
Corrosion resistant test – Withstands over 24 hours of continuous salt spray environment and remains corrosion free.
Shock and awe
Stringent testing procedures ensure faultless performance in the most rugged hunting conditions imaginable, making it possible for you to act and react with ultimate confidence in every hunting and shooting situation.
Shock test with up to 1,500 times g-force
Impact shock test at 1,500 g-force, which corresponds to shooting the 460 Weatherby Magnum cartridge, with a 500 grain bullet traveling @ 2,600 feet per second.
Reticle 60 Illuminated
The reticle 60 is lighter and finer than the reticle 40, which was widely used only a few years ago. The bars have only half the subtension of the earlier model and there is twice the amount of free space between them. It is therefore ideally suited for precise shooting with the least possible coverage of the target game. With 12x magnification and a subtension of only 0.55 cm at a distance of 100 m, you always have an excellent overview – no fine details are hidden from view. The illuminated dot is extremely bright and can therefore also be used for daytime hunting. The brightness of the illuminated dot can be dimmed at extremely finely, making it ideal for night hunting as well. The reticle is located in the scope’s second image plane.
Mil-Dot Illuminated Reticle
Classic reticle for fast, long shots combined with the finest illuminated dot. At the respective scope’s reference magnification, the reticle’s characteristic dots are exactly 10 cm apart at a distance of 100 m, making it easy to accurately estimate distances. The angle between the dots at this magnification is exactly 1 millirad, allowing trained shooters to quickly determine the appropriate holdover point at long distances. The reticle is located in the scope’s second image plane. The ZEISS Hunting app can be used to quickly and precisely determine the change in subtension and the resulting bullet drop compensation and wind drift correction values for practically any ammunition.
