Wide field of view

At the lowest magnification the field of view is at its widest, allowing the hunter to see more of the surroundings in view. In general, a wide field of view allows for rapid target acquisition and provides the hunter with utmost awareness of the complete environment around the target. 

Brilliant image quality

The Ultra-FL Concept contains several SCHOTT fluoride glass elements for absolute color fidelity, brightness, and clarity. Ensuring you the finest resolution of details, even in the harshest conditions and most challenging environment. 

Wide zoom range

With the magnification ranging from 1.8x up to 14x, this V8 would likely be considered the most versatile ZEISS riflescope. Suitable for driven hunts, stalking, high seat at night, and even up to medium-to-long-range shots.

The world’s finest illuminated dot

The secret behind the precision of ZEISS riflescopes 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.

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.

Stable and Shot-Proof

The ZEISS V8, ZEISS Victory HT, ZEISS Conquest V6, and ZEISS Conquest V4 riflescopes are all ideally suited for use with "clip-on" attachments.

Multifunction Button

The multifunction illumination control button is the most advanced reticle illumination system on the market. It can be quickly, silently, and intuitively operated even with gloves on. The illumination 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 – and ensures an immediate and perfect aiming solution in any lighting condition.

The most versatile riflescope

The combination of maximum zoom range, the brightest optics and optimal ease of use makes the ZEISS V8 the ultimate all-purpose riflescope for all distances and situations – whether you are on a driven hunt, stalking, high seat hunting, or shooting at long-range. Whatever your hunting venture, the ZEISS V8 – the company's best super-zoom riflescope – enables fast reactions and maximum flexibility. Designed to ensure maximum hunting success.

Smart illuminated dot reticle

In combination with the multifunction button for control of the illuminated dot, an intelligent motion sensor system automatically activates the illuminated dot as soon as the rifle is raised to take aim. This enables hunters to concentrate on the hunt and the opportunity.

True long-range shooting capability

With an adjustment range of up to 100 clicks (click value = 1cm@100m), the BDC (ASV) enables accurate results through precise aiming at long-range. Long distances are no longer an obstacle.

Precise images

The new ZEISS V8 riflescopes provide brighter images coupled with most excellent image quality through advanced optical designs. These designs call for the best lens elements, light transmission coatings, and protective lens coatings. Furthermore, an ultra-sharp image is assured over all distances, thanks to the side parallax adjustment feature, standard with ZEISS V8 1.8-14x50, V8 2.8-20x56, and V8 4.8-35x60 models.

Highest performance combined with elegant design

The 30 mm main tube diameter offers a compact and mechanically sound design solution for the advanced ZEISS V8 riflescopes, offering a tough yet sleek and elegant design for the finest of hunting rifles.

Rapid aiming

Experience short reactions and rapid target acquisition ensured by large eye box and maximum field of view at low magnification settings.

Confidence in toughest conditions.

Shock

Precision in the face of stress

When you’re out hunting, the optics are exposed to extreme forces whenever shots are fired with the variety of different calibres and weapons often fall over - ZEISS optics confidently brave all this and more during every hunting trip*.

*A test shot is recommended after unintentional blows or shocks to the target optics.

Shock test with up to 1,500 times g-force

1,500 g corresponds to the shooting load of the .460 Weatherby Magnum calibre.

Waterproofness

Washed with all waters

Hours of waiting in the unrelenting pouring rain when out driven hunting, or the necessary cleaning of the optics with a water bottle – ZEISS hunting optics are built to be used and remain waterproof even when things get rough.

Waterproofing immersion test

Our tests simulate continuous rain and complete immersion of the optics in water, ensuring that all ZEISS optics are fully waterproof.

Continuous shocks

Tenaciously mobile

Driving along bumpy forest and country lanes with the gun in the boot or navigating rough terrain on foot – bumps and shocks are a normal part of hunting. So it’s all the better if the optics are prepared*

*A test shot is recommended after unintentional blows or shocks to the target optics.

Continuous shocks for 90 minutes

Even after one and a half hours of continuous vibration in different directions, the group of the optics remains unchanged.

Temperature

From the Sahara to the Arctic

From the heat of the hut to the bitter cold of the outdoors, or hours in the blazing sun – ZEISS hunting optics operate reliably in extreme climatic conditions.

Temperature shock

Deep freezing to -40°C and temperature shocks from -25° to 50°C in under 5 minutes. In the climatic chamber, ZEISS optics are tested to the material's limits.

Corrosion

Hard shell, hard core

When you go hunting, your optics are often exposed to aggressive liquids such as hand sweat and cosmetics. But thanks to a high-quality seal, these don’t stand a chance against ZEISS optics.

24 hours in salt spray

Side by side with metal test strips, ZEISS optics were stored in an aggressive salt water spray for 24 hours. While the test strips were covered in rust, the optics were entirely unfazed.

Reticle 54 Illuminated

The driven hunt reticle 54 is another special reticle from ZEISS. This enhanced version of the reticle 0 is designed for fast and reliable shots with minimal target subtension. In addition to the fine horizontal bar, it features crosshairs containing the ultra-fine illuminated dot. The horizontal bar is used for height correction when following a target and protects against weapon tilting. The crosshairs allow you to quickly shoulder your rifle and aim at the target, even without an illuminated dot. One look at the subtension reveals just how fine the illuminated dot is – at 12x magnification, only 0.55 cm is covered at a distance of 100 m. This is the finest and brightest illuminated dot in the world, a real benchmark. The reticle is located in the riflescope’s second image plane.

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 riflescope’s second image plane.
