Phase corrected prisms
The Vortex 12×50 Diamondback binoculars use the roof prism technology which uses only two lenses forcing light to travel directly to the eye. However, with this technology, the image tends to reflect off the prism surface causing the light to split into two beams.
This phenomenon produces a blurry, less sharp image and therefore, usually needs to be corrected. The Vortex 12x50 Binoculars contain a phase correction coating on the surface of the prism allowing for a sharper image with good contrast.
Fully multi-coated optics
Most binoculars have single layer coating on one lens making the vortex binos a high-end pair. This Vortex 12x50 Diamondback contain multiple layers of coatings on the lenses that were meaning that great care has gone into the design.
The lenses are also anti-reflective allowing for high-quality images and the ability to use the Vortex in a bad lighting condition. Fully Multi-Coated optics increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Dielectric multilayer prism coatings provide the Vortex 12x50 binoculars bright, clear, color-accurate images.
