80-200 L question

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

What makes this lens an "L"? Does it have flourite or UD elements? I haven't been able to locate this information anywhere. Thanks for any info on the lens/construction.

The optical formula of this lens contains one UD and one fluorite element. It is among the best zoom lenses Canon ever made.

Cheers, Hans
