North Chesterfield, Virginia - Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has big savings in store for hunters and birders. From August 1 through the end of the year, Zeiss is offering an unprecedented $500 rebate on all of its award-winning 65mm and 85mm VICTORY DiaScope spotting scopes. Those who purchase a DiaScope during this time will also receive a free portable tripod to enhance their viewing pleasure. This is all part of the Carl Zeiss 2012 FIELD DAYS Promotion. Stay tuned for the many savings opportunities on superior ZEISS optics that will be announced in less than two weeks.

How good is the ZEISS DiaScope? This newest model was launched in 2010 and won Field & Stream's Best of the Best award, Outdoor Life's Editor's Choice award, Petersen's Hunting's Editor's Choice award and the prestigious international Red Dot Design Award. The DiaScope's 20-75x eyepiece remains the most powerful on the market today and its many unique features include the revolutionary Dual Speed Focus System (DSF), superior FL lens system, locking eyepieces and rugged yet elegant exterior field armoring. With simple, one-piece construction, the DiaScope is waterproof, easy to use and offers unrivaled image quality due to its proprietary design and LotuTec water repellant coating that ensures outstanding performance in extreme weather conditions. For those who enjoy digiscoping, Zeiss' Quick Camera Adapter still offers the fastest way to switch from observation to photography in the field.

"We see no need to complicate something as simple and functional as the spotting scope. The ZEISS DiaScope has always offered the best value on the market when it comes to things observers truly value in the field," said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. "The DiaScope has the most powerful eyepiece available that produces extraordinary image quality. Plus, it is a single body unit which will always be more durable and waterproof than modular systems. For serious hunters and birders, durability and simplicity matter."

Full details of the DiaScope promotion will be announced on August 1 as part of the 2012 ZEISS FIELD DAYS Fall Promotion.
