    Read from a few sources (probably all originated from the same) that the light transmission for

    - positive red iridium 15%
    - positive red iridium polarized 18%

    Is there a typo mistake here?
    I have always got the impression that polarized always have lesser light transmission than the original without.

    I have often wondered about a typo too.
    I've both lenses, and for the life of me, can't perceive a 3% difference either way, any way...

    Thanks for the input, this still makes me wonder as it is against the norm (polarized normally reduce light transmission)
