    Anyone notice any optical differences between these two? Is it just a name change or is the coating for the latter one improved?

    I have the older version. I can't point out any shortcomings. Sharp, good contrast, compact, sturdy, fast. Not enough weight to worry about. If I thought the latest version would be an improvement I would probably get one. But I don't.
