With an apparent field of view of 69°, the Paragon uses six lens elements in four groups, and all air-to-glass surfaces are treated with broadband coatings that transmit 99.98%. The Paragon also utilizes internal spacers with non-reflective anodizing and micro-baffles to reduce internal reflections.
