Technical Specifications for Leupold VX-III Riflescope
Feature / Benefit
Here's how the Leupold Index Matched Lens System works: Leupold engineers specified very low reflection of light at several key points across the range of colors that the human eye can see. Light that doesn't reflect off the lens surfaces transmits through and contributes to a crisp, true-colored and brilliant image. The light that is transmitted does not bounce around inside the scope, causing glare that can degrade the contrast you want.
Since dozens of different glass types are available to create a lens system that gives you the optical performance you need, the lens technicians had to pick just the right coating material for each individual lens surface, in order to meet the stringent specifications established by our technical team. They also matched the ideal coating materials to each lens' glass type and layered these different substances to minimize reflections and maximize performance. The result? Some of the new VX-III riflescopes have measured as high as 98 percent TOTAL light transmission, which means you'll get brightness and clarity like you've never seen before.
