Light management?

https://www.leupold.com/wp-content/u...ent-System.pdf

Anyone have any thoughts on how this works or how well it works?

It seems that good optics practices such as blackening the edges to eliminate stray light have received the 'Marketingspeak' miracle transform.

Well, who wouldn't want Beethoven over ''white noise''?

Actually, I would prefer Sibelius or Walton, or, if we must be Germanic, Brahms.

It just looks like responsible design to me.
Before about 2014, there was a period where edge-blackening was missing
from important brands, baffling was minimal, and it was assumed multi-coating
would magically lead to saturation.
As the camera folks learned, it's just the beginning.

It feels good they come out and say how they manage light.
Even the choice and arrangement of curvature makes a difference,
once an instrument is a year or two out of the factory.

You have to wonder: if they have re-discovered the magic
of light management, who hasn't yet? (still)
