Quote: If I can locate the pics in the future (they are on a different computer), I will post pics of eye lens coating failure on a Nagler 31mm T5.

Quote: This is the only pic of the Nagler 31mm T5 with bad coatings that I can find at this time. The portion in the reflection of the lights, that appears bright white, had recently flaked off when that pic was taken (hence the sharper edges of that patch).
Quote:Thanks for posting the picture. I am sure that there are some who are qualified will evaluate and comment on the condition of lens.
