Zeiss HT binoculars deliver outstanding performance in a binocular. Built on the Zeiss FL concept (fluoride containing lenses), the new Zeiss HT's employ Schott High Transmission lenses which yield high transmission levels of 95%. Less light loss means more light making up the picture, to deliver the best contrast, and performance in all lighting conditions. Peer into dark corners of the forest and see every nook and cranny. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum using these exotic lenses, so the visible colors are real and well-saturated, with very little halo appearing around animals and tree branches.

Focusing is a breeze with the HT's well-engineered focuser. The large, well-placed focus knob is easy to access. The long focuser gearing give more precision, with less hunting for the optimal focus position.

The double-link bridge design delivers maximum precision and is very robust. The binocular body and bridge is made of high-strength, ultra-light Magnesium. The double-link bridge also serves to protect the focus knob from impact. The overall feel of the binocular is slim, due to the advanced design.
