ZEISS SFL 8x40 Binoculars

With the ZEISS SFL binoculars (SmartFocus Lightweight), special moments can be experienced with ease. Optimized to be as lightweight and compact as possible, the SFL binoculars are a perfect addition to the SF family. The new Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) Concept ensures true-to-life color reproduction and the highest level of detail. Thanks to its SmartFocus Concept, the focus wheel is perfectly positioned and enables fast and precise focusing – even with gloves on. The optimized ergonomics and a large exit pupil allow for a relaxed and undisturbed viewing experience.

With a field of view of up to 140 meters at a distance of 1,000 meters and a closest focusing distance of 1.5 meters, the SFL 8x40 deliver a perfect overview combined with precise detail recognition.

The lens diameter has been reduced by 2 mm, making it possible to use thinner lens elements at closer spacing and thus reduce the binoculars’ weight by up to 20% and their volume by up to 13% compared to the ZEISS Victory SF models. As a result, the SFL binoculars are up to 30% lighter than comparable products from competitors.

Outstanding binoculars

The Zeiss 8x40 SFL is a big step ahead of mid-range binoculars of similar price and is similar in performance to alpha models. The field is bright, lucid and superbly clear with excellent colour rendition. The field of view is very large. The ergonomics are excellent and the light weight makes these binoculars suitable for one-handed use. Focus wheel is class-leading. Build quality is of a very high standard. I can not think of any weaknesses or flaws in these binoculars. For the price, a better binocular can not be bought. Brilliant work by Zeiss.
