The Z-Point Reflex Sights from Carl Zeiss for drive hunting are now available with LotuTec®.
This innovative protective layer on the optical element ensures that water beads off the surface immediately without residue. Compared to competitors’ products, LotuTec displays favorable physical properties and therefore sets a new standard: thanks to the very large contact angle with the glass surface, the water droplets practically retain their spherical shape – and simply bead off the surface.
On a non-coated surface, raindrops spread out and a film of water remains on the optics, impairing visibility. Thanks to LotuTec®, only a minimal amount of dirt and grease adhere to the surface and can be quickly and easily removed like a fingerprint. LotuTec® therefore greatly enhances the functional value of the Z-Point models in tough hunting conditions. This patented invention from Carl Zeiss has already proven very successful on binoculars, riflescopes and eyeglass lenses a million times over.
Fast target acquisition
The brightness of the red dot in the reflex sight is controlled electronically and adapts automatically to the light conditions. However, it can also be set manually. Even in angled viewing, the brightness and crispness of the red dot remains constant at all times. An automatic shutdown function deactivates Z-Point after four hours without changing the selected settings. When the system is switched on again, the settings are automatically active.
In daylight, solar cells supply the electronics of the reflex sights with energy. As dusk approaches or in unfavorable light conditions, the integrated battery then supplies the power. This function patented by Carl Zeiss increases the lifetime of the battery by many hours. This hybrid energy supply is regulated by digital control via computer chip.
Z-Point: Versatile, robust and compact
The classic Z-Point reflex sights are very popular due to their versatility and robustness. They are ideal for the tough conditions experienced in hunting and game retrieval. The housing of the Z-Point models is milled from a single block of aluminum and is therefore extremely resistant. They are available for mounting on Weaver or Picatinny rails, in the Z-Point S version for Sauer 303 and Sauer 202 together with ISI mount rails as well as Z-Point F3 for the Blaser F3 shotgun in the dot rail version. Due to the spring clamp, Z-Point Reflex Sights with Weaver or Picatinny rails can be mounted in a matter of seconds.

The Victory Z-Point models with the LotuTec® protective coating are available from dealers from 1 December 2009. In Germany, the recommended selling price of the Victory Z-Point (optionally with Weaver or Picatinny rails) is 575 euros, and 625 euros for the Z-Point S and Z-Point F3 models.
