In many areas and aspects of wordly goods, it has long been the case that relatively highly increased premiums are paid for relatively minor "improvements".
Often, around 50% of the "top offering" price can buy around 90% the quality of a similar product.
Whether or not that extra 10% of product quality is worth that extra 50% price will always be open to debate, but generally speaking, "the best" more often than not is, by definition, "the best" money can buy, and some people who can more comfortably afford "the best", choose to do so.
From an economic standpoint it is usually not worth it,
and many, maybe most of us cannot tell the difference;
but if you are pushing the optics for that last degree of definition,
and can afford it, then maybe
My argument to myself is the eyes are getting older
and need all the help they can get
(probably false that optics will help)
but late at night when one is trying so hard...........
