Meaning of the abbreviations
Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses
Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour
ZEISS T* Multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility
ZEISS Multi-layer coating (multi coating)
P / P*
Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating
Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used
Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation
Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations
High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution
High Transmission = lenses by Schott with very good transmission properties.
Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
