Swarovski Z8i 3.5-28x50

The Swarovski Z8i 3.5-28×50 is a high-magnification, multi-purpose optic with fantastic low light performance. With 28x zoom, you don’t need to pack a heavy spotting scope to see long distances. High magnification optics inherently lose performance, but with Swarovski’s superior glass and coatings, image quality is maintained and eye relief remains comfortable even at maximum zoom.

We offer several crosshair options across the Z8i line. The 4w-I option on the left offers wind holds of 2 MOA at 16x magnification, and the 4A-I on the right offers a clean, unobstructed sight picture.

The Swarovski Z8i is our flagship product line for high-end uncompromising optics combining excellent performance in low light conditions, and unparalleled edge-to edge clarity, with the best illumination system available. The Z8i line represents the best that Swarovski has to offer.



The Z8i line utilizes the upgraded Swarovski High Definition lenses for sharper, brighter images, especially noticeable in the higher magnification range. This makes the Z8s clearly superior for high-magnification requirements in low light conditions. Of course, the Z8s use the same 4-point coil spring erector system for precise, repeatable tracking which is essential for long range reliability. Finally, the Ballistic Turret Flex system, unique to the Z8 line, allows quick attach and detach of the ballistic turret, with more range and flexibility than the turret system on Swarovski Z6 and Z5 lines.
