ed-coatings

Multi-Layer Lens Coatings: This basically means that the lenses have received multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces which increase light transmission to produce a brighter image and therefore better low light performance. Anti-reflective coatings can make a really big difference on the brightness of the image produced. It is not unusual to look through binoculars with smaller objective lenses, but with higher quality anti-reflection coatings and seen them outperform binoculars with much larger objective lenses, but with fewer or no coatings. The diagram above shows how these coatings improve the transmission of light.

phase

Phase Correction: When light enters a roof prism, the beam is split into two paths and the resultant beams are circularly polarized. The two paths have slightly different lengths, so the polarization axes are not in phase when the beams recombine. Phase correction coatings are applied to the shorter path to equalize the path lengths so that when the beams recombine the polarization axes are in phase. This produces a brighter and sharper image. The top half of this image shows the benefits of phase correction.

dach

BaK-4 Prisms: First - Prisms are what let you see a correctly oriented image when you look through a pair of binoculars. There are two types of prisms in common use, Porro prisms and Roof prisms. Roof Prisms as with the Vortex Diamondback binoculars use BaK-4 prisms are the best in less expensive binoculars; they are made of superior optical glass that produces clearer images. These are what you want in your binoculars. BK-7 prisms are used in lower priced binoculars. These are satisfactory, but they are inferior to the BaK-4 prisms. Some manufacturers will not tell you what kind of prisms they use, usually because they are of inferior quality.
