Carl Zeiss Victory 10x42 T* FL
18 August 2010
Conclusion: These are the binoculars which won our big 10x42 instruments test. Such a feat was accomplished due to their better-than-average and sometimes even exemplary optical properties. We haven’t found a better transmission, coma correction and chromatic aberration correction level in any other 42 mm class device. Not much worse performance, because also almost perfect, was noted in the categories of astigmatism, whiteness rendition, light fall-off or central vignetting.
Pros: high quality of housing,, excellent transmission,, simply perfect coma correction,, negligible chromatic aberration,, low astigmatism,, perfect blackening,, very low edge brightness loss,, very good whiteness reproduction,, high class optical elements,, sharp image in almost all the field,, minimal focus already from 1.7 meters, wide range of IPD.
Cons: distortion a bit too high,, false pupils – something that shouldn’t exist in the equipment of this class.
Conclusion: That is the water repelling characteristic of surfaces, to simply let water drops pearl off as well as repel dirt. LotuTec® acts as protective coating and cleaning and care is made much simpler. This technology has been used for a while on Carl Zeiss spectacle lenses and has now been developed for most of the Zeiss Victory Binoculars range and is used on the Zeiss 10x42 Victory FL Binoculars
