Nikon has, for decades, touted that thei "ED" glass was superior... until they finally were able to use fluorite element. Their FL lenses use fluorite in a similar way as Canon does.

Thanks for that BC !! 
 
 I remember the Nikon had a double fluorite front elements .... the Canon has a similar arrangement then?

   Quite a weight saving on the Canon!

  What were the lenses that Klaus linked with only one front element then? I don't have a translate on my browser ...... and I don't read hieroglyphics     Smile
