Some important features are the Kite 67 layer coatings on the prisms, the complex multi-element eyepiece design and the Aspheric lenses that reduce aberration.

Also new are the twist-up eyecups, which the user can now easily clean he. If necessary the user can also easily replace the eyecups by new ones he, as Kite always provides new eyecups to its customers free of charge.
