New Fully-multi-coated optics

amount of light passing through a lens, thereby prevent flare and
ghosting from interfering with your view. Pentax applies multiple layers
of coatings to every surface of every element and prism in the full
Sport Optics line-up. These fully-multi-coated optics assure the maximum
light transmission resulting in a clear, crisp view of the world.

all Pentax Sport Optics is highly acclaimed for its perfectly round exit
pupil and clear, unvignetted image.
