ED Glass- High definition glass

ED glass gives you an image with little or no chromatic fringe so the final result brings an ultimate clearest and sharpest image to your eyes

ESP Dielectric Coating- Enhanced Spectral Prism Dielectric Coating

ESP Dielectric Coating is a multi layer prism coating that reflects over 99% of the light to your eyes bringing you a clear, bright image that displays accurate color reproduction.

Lightweight Magnesium Chassis

Magnesium chassis give you the strength of a metal chassis while reducing the weight as much as 35%

XPL Coating- Xtra Protective Layer coating

XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches

Phase Corrected prisms

Phase corrected prisms produce images that have better contrast, a higher resolution and better color reproduction

BaK4 prisms
