I see, but where does the "ED" stand for?

the "compact portrait" seems to be missing it... Could this mean that the 3D has superior glass?

  • I expect the "ED" stands for Extra Low-Dispersion glass. 
  • But... I wouldn't attach any particular significance to that snippet, since that slide seems riddled with inconsistencies in where 'ED' acronym is applied (or not).  For example, we know both the 60mm and 85mm lenses use ED glass, yet neither got an ED label.
