    Zeiss binos

    I got a pair of 8x56b t*p* i was thinking of selling these were fully refurbed with new lenses last year I don't use them what you think they are worth according to zeiss they are victories manufactured in 2000 thanks for your help.

    I've the exact same Binos but in 10 x 40 t*p* think carefully about selling them as they are considered by many to be the best Binos ever made by zeiss , I'd think about 5-600 quid in good nick
    There are no perfect men in this world ..... Only perfect intentions

    A general rule of thumb is 60% of the new value of the equivalent/current model. But.... why would you sell them? You would have to prize my Zeiss Victory RF out of my cold, dead hands!

    regards

    I think 500 - 600 is rather on the low side.... Uttings are selling the new version of these for 1450!

    I would think that as they have had the lenses replaced for new ones only a year ago, then they would easily be worth nearer the 800 mark.... That still only works out to be 55% the cost of a new pair.

    Do not sell them. They are superb binoculars and along with the 7x42 version will outlast most of the current stuff, and will still be perfect for your grandchildren when you no longer have use for them in 40 years time.

    Got a pair of 7 x 42 myself. Kalahari took them to the Kalahari over the last few weeks and they were brilliant. Don't sell!!!!
