    Zeiss 8x32 has arrived.. Unboxing

    PYRTLE - since the post you mentioned they send me SF 10x42, HT 10x42 and Conquest HD 10x42 for testing. But it was in 2016... Mark - Zeiss scored very well in endurance test taking 1st place so it is not argument for not sending me SF 8x32. However, maybe again something is wrong with baffling...

    There is some inconsistency in eye relief data. Technical data tables shown in their webpage give 20 mm, but PDF with technical data shows 18 mm.

    I think during presentation they say "one hundred thirteen" not "one hundred thirty". 7.4 deg for 12x seems too high. But we will see tomorrow.

    New Leica September 4 2017

    Yep... Leica reports a transmission of 110% of the newest Leitz Trinovid 10x40, so I belive it is not a reliable source of information... ;)

    Legendary binoculars - Carl Zeiss Jena Deltrintem 8x30

    Deltrintem 8x30 was from 1985, not from 1978. Jenoptem 7x50 and Deltrintem 8x30 (both with T3M coatings) were measured using the same equippment. The differences in transmission might come from different specimens and also from absorption of the light in glass. Bigger 7x50 model indicates...

    Legendary binoculars - Carl Zeiss Jena Deltrintem 8x30

    32 vs 30 mm gives 14% light more only due to the aperture difference. Multicoated Jenas were still optimized for centrum of visible spectrum and transmission level of 90% was reached only there. If you average transmission in wider range of wavelenghts, the total amount of light delivered to...

    LPT - thanks for the comments but: 1. for me "taking over" us quite the same as "acquiring majority". Additionally, it is clearly said that production of Hensoldt devices was contintued. 2. "In 1964, however, the first roof prisms Zeiss device was shown on the market - the Carl Zeiss Dialyt...

    I have not tested 7x42 FL but Henry is right: http://img7.ph.126.net/DNAolyNQ5GTSUHvDbUYy2A==/1095500609375523637.jpg From left to right: 7x42, 8x42 and 10x42. Shorter barrel 7x42 is seen clearly.

    To all fans of classic Zeiss binoculars

    Henry, many thanks for valuable comments. I have just corrected the article. The light transmission shown in the article is for 8x42 FL model which was tested in our endurance test in 2012/2013. This means it is LotuTec version. FL 32 was announced in September 2004.

    I am trying to input all after WWII Zeiss binoculars into the database of Allbinos: http://www.allbinos.com/16-Carl_Zeiss-binoculars.html and I encountered some problems. According to this page: http://home.europa.com/~telscope/zeissbn2.txt the first Zeiss Dialyt 8x30B was produced in 1964-1969...
