2003 model Improvement
Recently, I was given the opportunity to test a new 2003 model of the 15x70s to compare the coatings to the older models. Although my 2002 model is listed as FMC, there are obvious reflections indicating uncoated surfaces, possibly on the prisms. These newer 2003 version show substantial improvement. All surfaces appear to be coated. The eyelens is now multi-coated as compared to the 2002 model that appeared to have single blue MgF on the lenses. Reflections off the objective lens are reduced. Contrast is improved. I was able to view objects at the limits of performance with these newer 2003 15x70s that I could not see in my older 2002 15x70s. Significant improvement. Excellent value.
