Quote: Coatings: FMC. Despite various specs and speculation, the instrument bears the words 'Fully Multi-Coated' and the objectives do indeed present healthy bluish-green reflections.
Quote: ALSO, we already know from past experiences that some Chinese binoculars that are labeled FMC, ARE NOT FMC. Oberwerk went thru this discovery phase about 4 years ago, when he finally brought it to the attention of the consumer. So, claims of FMC from anything less than a highly reputable source may sometimes be nothing more than passing along the improperly associated specs from the Chinese manufaturers page. This type of misinformation has been uncovered in a number of lower quality products on the market.
Quote: all multicoatings designed for visual use are broadband by definition

Quote: FWIW, a quick search does find these advertised FMC Barskas.
