according to docs, this should work but it doesnt (as soon as i put in fields[]):
  name: 'mainImageMedium',
  title: 'HeaderBild Medium',
  type: 'image',
  fields: [
      name: 'caption',
      type: 'string',
      title: 'Caption',
      options: {
        isHighlighted: true // <-- make this field easily accessible

  type: 'boolean',
  initialValue: true,

ohhh… that might be the difference… in the example the image type could be the top level….

I will try to refactor the image type into a seperate schema definition and include it in my other “master document”
