Up for sale are a used set of the much lauded 8x32 Zeiss Victory FLs. Come with the original box and case. My stable of binoculars has become far too big and I’m looking to thin the heard. So, someone will end up with this iconic binocular. Price is $1,350 PayPal +3% ($1,391) TYD - CONUS only. No trades.

It is one of the more recent models with all of the best FL features = Flourite Glass and LutoTec lens coatings. It has the telltale “eyebrow” designation over the model designation. Don’t know the exact manufacture date. Only Zeiss can provide that.

According to Zeiss they were manufactured in Dec 2010. What afficionados look for to differentiate versions of this model is the telltale “eyebrow” over the 32 in the model designation - which means it has the updated eyecups, full flourite glass, and LutoTec lens coatings. Condition: Used - no optical issues I can detect, body is very clean for a used binocular, but the rubber lens covers show obvious signs of wear.

Someone just pointed out the odd white looking area around the focus wheel in one of the pictures above. Since I see them all the time, really didn’t notice the residue buildup between the ocular portions of the barrels and focus wheel - Thank You. That recessed area is a typical debris collection point on most binoculars. I worked a disposable Zeiss lens cloth through the area and the debris came right off (see updated pic below).

As the pictures indicate, this used binocular is in well above average condition. Optically, I can find no flaws. As typical on a used binocular, the rubber protective lens covers have some obvious signs of wear.

Thanks for all who showed interest. However, I’ve decided to keep them - realized that combination of superb optics, small, light and extremely good handling is just to precious to part with and all I’ll every need in a 32mm binocular.
