IT NOW HAS A GOOD ZOOM EYEPIECE WITH UP TO 56X / 66mm Model !!

, 01/19/2010. CHESTER, Va., January 19, 2010 – Carl Zeiss introduces new Victory DiaScope T* FL Spotting Scopes – the ultimate in nature observation. Featuring an innovative and highly advanced Dual Speed Focus System (DSF), the new Victory DiaScopes also have an eyepiece that is the most powerful and versatile on the market today and a new, sleek rubber-armored exterior for improved feel and protection for the highly durable magnesium/aluminum housing.

Brilliant Optical Performance

Available in compact 65mm models for the more mobile users and 85mm models for those seeking maximum brightness and highest magnification, the DiaScope’s optical performance is exceptional. Its FL lens system was engineered to produce superior image quality – extremely detailed, sharp, brilliant, true-color images, even in challenging lighting and weather situations. The new DiaScopes also feature an advanced stray light reduction system which virtually eliminates contrast-reducing stray light.

Rapid Focusing

The newly engineered Dual Speed Focus System (DSF) allows precise and convenient focusing.

This one focus wheel allows you to control both the ultra-precise and rapid focusing without changing your grip. The control is ultra-precise when the focusing wheel is turned back
and forth slowly around the point of best focus. The rapid focusing, which is five times faster, is automatically activated when the focus wheel is turned more than 270°.

More Magnification

The powerful new Vario D 15-56x / 20-75x eyepiece is particularly versatile. It functions as a 15-56x on the 65mm DiaScope and 20-75x on the 85mm model providing the widest range of power currently available on the market. Not only will long-range observation be improved by the extra magnification, viewers will also experience an unusually wide field of view and high image brightness at low magnification. Eyepieces for the new DiaScopes are also available in the Vario D 15-45x / 20-60x and Vario D 30x / 40 x models. All DiaScope eyepieces come with Carl Zeiss’ award-winning LotuTec® water repellant coating. A bayonet locking system securely locks the eyepieces onto the body of the scope yet still allows for quick and easy changing.

Tough and Durable

The aluminum / magnesium housing make the new DiaScopes lightweight and robust, and the high-quality armoring provides optimal protection and an outstanding feel while eliminating noise during use in the field. All DiaScopes are waterproof and nitrogen filled. Accessories include an ultra-functional carrying case featuring an AirCell carrying strap with quick-release fasteners for ready use at a moments notice. Both models are available in straight or angled bodi

I saw it at the SHOT show.  It is of course a superb spotter that appears to improve on a couple of the weaknesses of the previous Diascope FL.  I couldn't truly evaluate it inside the convention center, so I can only say the image quality looked really good as best I can tell.  Given its pedigree, I have little doubt it is world-class.  I can tell you it has a much wider sweet spot than the previous Diascope, and a pretty sharp image out to the field edge.  It has an interesting new focus mechanism, and I'm not sure whether I really like it better than the previous dual focuser or not; I'd have to use it awhile to discover that.  I have no doubt it is comparable to some of the best spotters in the world.  But unless someone suddenly approaches me and wants to unload one for 20% of its original cost, I'll never know, as I've been told the thing retails for more than $3K

I see the new 15-56/20-75 eveypiece is fully compatible with the older Diascopes (other than the locking bayonet feature won't work).  Maybe current Diascope owners (like me) can upgrade the eyepiece, and reap the benefits of the wider sweet spot and higher magnification!  Plus we get to keep the "old" dual focus system.
 
Yippee
