Swarovski Z8i Riflescope 8x Zoom


The SWAROVISION technology redefined the concept of optical quality. Field Flattener lenses provide unprecedented peripheral definition, fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize colour fringing, while optimized coatings ensure maximum colour fidelity. The large eye relief offers a full field of view for those wearing eye glasses.


The HD optics feature fluoride-containing lenses, which virtually eliminate colour aberrations. The scatter is considerably less with fluoride than with even the best types of optical glass. This enables maximum colour fidelity and leads to a significant improvement in resolution and contrast.
Swarovski Z8i Riflescope Reticle


Coating for maximum colour fidelity across the whole light spectrum: SWAROVSKI OPTIK was the first manufacturer in the world to use this technology in series production.


Coatings for bright, high-contrast images: Reduces surface light reflection from 4-6% to 0.2%. Used on all the lenses and prisms found in SWAROVSKI OPTIK products.


This non-stick coating on the lenses makes it easier to clean away dirt such as water marks, insect repellents, or tree resin.
