I am not sure about all the differences, but I know of one you don’t mention: Zeiss started adding LotuTec coatings on the outer lens surfaces. My 8x32 FL had a little ‘umbrella’ over the “32” on the hinge label to indicate this, seen here.
A few more photos of my example (bought in 2011) in case they’re useful for showing exterior or packaging differences:
