Yes, that was a key selling point of this new mount. However, is that solely responsible for the improvements or do we have new tech like fluorine or areno coatings, new capability in lens element design or manufacture, new optical formulas?

The fact that you're asking the question, and framing it in this way, shows that you already know the answer. Of course technological advances have made possible the design of better-performing lenses. This has been the case throughout the history of photography, and continues to be the case today.

No, I don't know the answer, and I'm not sure anyone outside of Nikon can really answer it.  Are the optical improvements in the new lenses mount related, tech related, or both?
