    Leica Trinovid 10x42 BA (999xxx) light reflections when looking through in daylight

    Ok, great thanks a lot: so they are phase coated. If they are duds (as in fakes?) they look like a very good fake as the feel and look great. You're right, if I adjust them better over my eyes the glare goes away somewhat. If i bend my head a little it also goes away to a certain extent.

    Leica Trinovid 10x42 BA (999xxx) light reflections when looking through in daylight

    Hello, I am new to this forum and am impressed at the wealth of information available here. I've just bought a pair of great looking Trinovids 10x42 BA (serial 999xxx from 1989 I think) and I need your advice about an issue with light reflections when using the binoculars in daylight. There...
