Kowa Prominar 8x33 - different lens coatings
today I got my own NOS Prominar 33, as I had to borrow it from my wife the last years occasionally and had to live with my Minox HG.
Funny thing, the serial numbers differ only by 500, the new one slightly newer...
Luckily they don't have the same number
Funny thing is, they both have completely different lens coatings. The reflexes in both glasses are certainly identical in size and position, but the colors are completely different... yellow-white, amber-green... ??
And I feel (only indoor until now) that one glass is a little bit warmer than the other...
BTW does anyone know who really produces the kowa binoculars? I think, as the german importer told me once, that Kowa makes the scopes in a own factory and the binos (all) by a OEM...??? JB2 ... JB?....
Has anyone valued information?
thanks in advance
Kowaist now also with own Kowa bino

I believe the Genesis X44 is made by Kamakura Koki, but I don't know if that goes for the x33 as well.
