Zeiss 8x42 Victory SF (Black0Review by RonL
I traded in my 8x42 Noctovid for these and don't regret it. The weight, user location of grip, focus wheel and balance is superb. They are Crystal clear to use and great in low light conditions. image is very sharp.
My only complaint is the eye piece, these compared to the binoculars are of poor design and do not lock in position with the certainty of the Leica click. It would also benefit if Zeiss made proprietary wing cups as other brands dont really work as well. (Posted on 04/05/2019)
Unbelievable binsReview by Paul V
Truly incredible bins, feel light due to clever lens arrangement and clarity of image and close focus unbelievable, I just love them. they ooze quality. The best bins I have ever owned or looked through. Had them a year plus now and still gobsmacked when I pick them up. Fantastic. (Posted on 26/07/2018)
Zeiss Victory SF 8x42Review by Mouseshadow
I've been using my SFs now for about a year. I choose them over the comparable Leica and Swarovski. For me these were clearly a better binocular. Bright, crystal clear with a huge field of view, superbly balanced and designed (look where the focussing wheel is!) and so completely 'user friendly'.

I could go on.

Zeiss customer services (at Cambridge) have been s pleasure to deal with.

Zeiss Victory SF 8 x 42 BlackReview by Tony
This is a top quality binocular. Very well balanced and easy to hold for long periods. Very wide field of view and crystal clear optics. I chose this after trying the Leica Noctivid, so I guess that says it all. Excellent service from Cley Spy is an added bonus. (Posted on 13/10/2016)
Zeiss Victory SF 8 x 42 Black - Top class, top quality binocularsReview by ANS
Cley Spy are one of the few dealers to stock the Black (2016) model. It is a beautifully built binocular. Fantastically wide field of view, making them a joy to use. They feel light and very well balanced. The ergonomics advertised by Zeiss as making the binoculars feel as is they are resting comfortably on your orbits is actually true. The focus wheel is fast and gorgeously smooth to use. Much smoother than either my Leica or Swarovski binoculars. The superb service from Cley Spy just adds to the overall experience.
