New Zeiss V8

Post by Sakobud »

Looks like the Victory V8's will be available in 30mm now except the 4.8-35 being 34mm now as per their Instangram post!

Reticle 43 is an option for the 2.8-20 now as previous only the 4.8-35 had it

Looks to reaffirm Swarovski's decision to not go above 30mm with their Z8i line.

Personally, I like the looks of a 30mm tube better (even in a railed scope which is usually what I purchase), however, I bet the reason Zeiss did it is for weight. It'll be interesting to see how these new V8 scopes compare weight-wise with the old ones.

I wonder if it'll effect the elevation and windage ranges compared to the older V8 models.

Lose some weight and my interest might spark up. Will also almost certainly reduce elevation and windage adjustment.

The new Zeiss V8, seems to have the same elevation and wind adjustments, like the previous generation, ..., see below technical data.

Bit late to the party did not see people commentong on here , the only thing that has changed is that the eye relief is not 95 but 92 with the 30mm tube everything else seems to be the same.

Quite amazed that both elevation and windage stayed the same but still prefer my 36mm V8. If one needs more elsvation just buy the innomount 20 MOA mount and you got more clicks.

Weight wise did not go down that much buthas some saving.

My railed v8 2.8-20 is 850g and new 30mm version is 830g

I am glad I picked up a 1-8x30 for my BD14 when I did. 30mm lens (36mm tube) is as small as I like.
