It has a higher light transmission percentage then MultiCoat IV, up to 98%.
Leupold reports in the catalog "SOME of the new models have measures AS HIGH as 98% transmission". Then I think to myself. What does SOME mean and even more important, what does AS HIGH mean????? Why can’t they just report average/median numbers? What is AS HIGH? Is it a 3 sigma spec (less than 1 out of 100), a absolute maximum ever measured during production or what? Why I ask? Cause if it’s a 3 sigma spec I have a less than 1% chance to get a scope like that when I buy it from anywhere they sell... If you report the median, then at least I know I have 50% chance f getting such a scope...Why don't they report light transmission on specific models???
It's like saying on a Ford car ad "Some cars of some models can go up 360miles/h" Then I go get a Ford and when "I step on" it, I feel like
