    In the case of my two samples, more like a Lexus vs Fiat comparison.

    I have Fujinon A lenses in 180mm, 240mm, 300mm and 360mm, all EBC coated and in pristine condition. The 180 and 240 were...

    Yup.

    Or, more likely, standing waves in the emulsion during coating by the manufacturer.

    My late grandfather once shared the wisdom with me that "you're not wealthy enough to afford cheap stuff." :)

    Why struggle with such issues when Kodak and HARMAN still offer top quality products?
