Congratulations on purchasing your new ZEISS VICTORY® SF binoculars. Enjoy the memorable experience of realistic image reproduction featuring extreme brightness and the finest reproduction of detail.

ZEISS products are famous for outstanding optical performance, precision engineering, and a long service life. Please observe the following instructions for use to obtain the best from your product and to ensure that they remain your constant companion for many years to come.



  • Do not under any circumstances look through the binoculars at the sun or laser light sources! Serious eye injury may otherwise result.
  • Avoid touching the metal surface after exposure to sunlight or cold.
  • Do not leave the removable exterior parts within reach of children (danger of swallowing).
  • Never leave the binoculars in the sun for extended periods without the protective lens cap. The objective lens and eyepiece can function as a burning glass and damage the interior components.
  • Do not drop the device and avoid direct impact on it.
  • Repairs should only be conducted by authorized repair shops or employees of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics GmbH. Allowing the device to be repaired by unauthorized workshops or opening it improperly will render the warranty void.

  • Aligning the eyecups, Viewing with and without glasses
    When viewing without glasses, use the binoculars with the eyecups extended. To do this, turn the eyecups (Fig. 4) to the left (anti-clockwise) and upwards to the top click stop position (Illustration A).Zeiss 524223 8x42 Victory SF Binocular-fig 9

The eyecup can be locked in four positions – at the bottom and top and in two intermediate positions. These adjustment options allow the distance of the eye from the exit pupil (to the eyepiece) to be varied according to the specific requirements of each user.

Note: If the eyecup is turned too far to the left when in the extended position, it can loosen. This is by design. For more information, see “Cleaning the eyecup”. By turning to the right you get back to the various click stop positions.

When viewing with glasses, turn the eyecup down to the right (clockwise) until it locks in the lowest click-stop position (Illustration B).

  • Cleaning and replacing the eyecups
    To replace the eyecups or for cleaning, they can be completely screwed off of the binoculars. Turn the eyecups out as shown in Fig. 4 to the top click stop position and turn one more thread in the same direction until the eyecup is completely screwed out.

After cleaning, or replacing the eyecup, turn it to the right (clockwise) completely on the eyepiece. (Also refer to setting for those who wear glasses). Using a slight jerk to the right the thread of the eyepiece clicks into the lowest setting. Finally, you can again set your desired distance between the eye and the eyepiece using the click stops.

  • Adjusting the eye spacing (pupillary distance)
    Bend the two barrels toward each other around the central axis, until the distance of the two eyepieces corresponds to the distance between your eyes. This will provide the optimum image for your eyes. The optimum eye spacing is achieved when a circular image is seen when viewing through the binoculars with both eyes.


The binoculars have a focusing wheel (Fig. 1 / 4) and a diopter adjustment wheel (Fig. 1 / 3). To adjust the diopter, close your right eye and focus the image in the left barrel using the center focusing wheel (Fig. 1 / 4). Then close your left eye and, if necessary, adjust the focus in the right barrel using the diopter adjustment wheel (Fig. 1 / 3).

The diopter adjustment features a scale with the signs “+” and “–”, and has an index point as a reference point. Note your setting, then you can quickly set your diopter setting on any binoculars.

Note: Always use the same object to focus the image on both sides of the binoculars. To focus other objects at varying distances, you then only need to use the focusing knob (Fig. 1 / 4).Zeiss 524223 8x42 Victory SF Binocular-fig 2

  • Attaching the carrying strap and protective cap
    The carrying strap, eyepiece cap, and protective lens cap are included in the packaging. As shown in Fig. 2 + 3, the eyepiece cap and carrying strap are attached to the binoculars using the carrying strap eyelet.

Before attaching the carrying strap, as shown in Fig. 3, the strap length should be set to the desired length by shortening or lengthening the strap. On the other side of the eyepiece cap follows the same sequence. The eyepiece cap can also be put on only one side if preferred.

The strap for the protective lens cap must be attached directly (either right or left) to the protective lens cap. To fasten the strap of the protective lens cap on the binoculars, use the carrying strap or one of the two eyelets for the carrying strap connection.

Use of the eyepiece cap

The eyepiece cap is stuck on the eyecups. You can maintain your desired eye-to-eyepiece distance with this. Remove the cover before using the binoculars.

Mounting on a tripod

Binoculars from the ZEISS VICTORY SF series can be mounted on any commercial camera tripod using the ZEISS Binofix universal tripod adapter. The order numbers for ZEISS tripods and the ZEISS Binofix universal tripod adapter can be found under Accessories for ZEISS VICTORY SF.

Care and maintenance

The binoculars feature the ZEISS LotuTec® coating. The effective protective coating for the lens surfaces noticeably reduces contamination of the lenses through a special smooth surface and the strong beading effect connected with it. All types of contamination adhere less and can be quickly and easily removed, smear-free. The LotuTec® coating is also durable and abrasion-resistant.

Please do not wipe coarse particles (e.g. g. sand) from the lenses, rather blow them away or use a fine brush to remove them. Over time, fingerprints can corrode the lens surface. Breathing on the lens and polishing with a clean optical cleansing cloth is the easiest method of cleaning the lens surface. Dry storage and keeping the outer lens surfaces well-ventilated, especially in the tropics, helps to prevent a possible mold film from forming on the optics. Your ZEISS VICTORY SF binoculars require no further special care.


Should you require spare parts for your binoculars, e.g. g. a protective cover, please contact your specialist retailer or our after-sales service. You can find the after-sales addresses for your country at: www.zeiss.com/nature/service
