Nikon travelite ex internal blackening.

Good morning / afternoon birdformers.

I've had the binoculars out over the weekend and to cut a long story short, it performs well in all ways except one.

In certain angles to the sun i can detect a fair bit of glare. I've had a peek down the objective tubes and can see what seems to be one surface that is shiny. The moving tubes are blackened.

So if I could scratch a few nikon heads please, could this possibly be a missed stage during production or is this typical on all travelite binoculars?

I've attached a picture to best show what I'm trying to describe. Thanks in advance.

Hi Binoscoper

I've noticed it in Travelite ex binoculars too, so it is typical. The RSPB Compacts are better in this respect.
