Zeiss Graphic - Binocular Features & Uses

Looking at the Zeiss website I came across this recently posted graphic (download the pdf for a more legible version)
It's from:

One interesting aspect is the distinction made between the glass types in the different product lines
And it specifically indicates that Schott HT glass is used in both the SF and HT lines
- see my previous posts #27 and #28 at:

The Pocket looks very impressive here, with FL glass and 91% transmission. No wonder it performs so well.

John, thanks for that graphic, in this Zeiss shows they are using 5 types of optical glass in binocular
lenses. I do understand the various types, but this does not really mean much except for the total
binocular design.
Leica boasted with the introduction of the Ultravid HD+, that they were using Schott HT glass, and many
Leica users of the Ultravid HD could not see any difference.

We do know both Zeiss and Swarovski have been using Schott HT glass even before Leica did.

Much of what we know and see is marketing jargon, and is very confusing, even to those in the know.

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
