Is the VX-II series considered to be "better" than the Vari-X III series ??

 

Other than VX-II pricing being (apparently) significantly less than the Vari-X III, I was wondering if there are any technical/performance benefits of one over the other.

 

Thanks,

 

Carl

its not better, but it will be jsut as clear, becuase it has the same coating, but it still has the same differences as it did last year.

I thought that the VXII was the old Vari-XIII relabeled.

What is the difference between the VX-II and Vari-X III
The VX-II has the same tactile, audible, click-style adjustments as the Vari-X III, but there are a couple of differences. The Vari-X III is a one piece maintube, the VX-II is 3 piece construction. The Vari-X III has Multicoat 4 on all lenses, while the VX-II has Multicoat 4 on the external lenses and magnesium fluoride on the internal lenses. The difference in lens coatings results in the Vari-X III having approximately 92% total light transmission, the VX-II having approximately 86%.
