How much has it improved? Well, I'd probably offer you $50 for a $500 scope from back then, if that tells you anything?
The glass quality might have only improved a little bit, but pricision functions and anti-reflective lens coatings have come a LONG way.
Example: Look at window tint on new cars vs old cars.....Old cars it turns kinda purple and looks like crap, right? Well, the new platinum material tint has better light filtering & better quality materials in it, and when it gets old, it doesn't turn purple and fade like the old tint does, yet it costs the same as the old stuff did back then.
