Nine years of rain, snow and ice. Nine years in the sun, surrendered to extreme temperature fluctuations. No way a riflescope can withstand that. That does not apply for a ZEISS! John Sveen forgot his weapon, including ZEISS riflescope, in the mountains of Norway. Now, almost a decade later, it was found back: the wooden shaft is bleached out and brittle, the muzzle rusted and unusable. Only the scope was almost like new.
The official starting signal will be given on 20 July 2012. The new CONQUEST HD models 8x32 and 10x32 will celebrate their debut. We sent one model on its way ahead of time. When deerstalking in the heart of the German state of Hesse not only are the new binoculars from Wetzlar on trial but with them the hunting skills of the tester. We will see whether our hunter comes up trumps...
For the launch of the new VICTORY HT riflescopes and binoculars Carl Zeiss came up with a really unusual idea: product films designed to provide information while also being full of emotion and excitement. To that end we filmed over several days in the most attractive areas of Germany and Namibia.
From "I don't need it!" to "I don't believe it!" - how one man's opinion was changed completely and what role the bullet drop compensation ASV+ played in that transformation. A report from Sönke Hinrichsen takes us from Schleswig-Holstein to Scotland.
Storms, flooding and the scorching heat of Namibia – the most extreme weather conditions for man and technology. A hunter tells us how his ZEISS binoculars had to undergo six months of extreme involuntary toughness testing. An incredible story of harsh natural elements and real "can-do" qualities.
