Purple/Green fringing caused by multicoating???
Jun 20, 2012

Interesting info I stumbled upon while looking up info on coatings used on 60's era lenses. This is from the astronomy community but hey lenses are lenses to significant degree. I have always wondered about purple and green fringing and assumed these aberrations were evidence of lousy lenses and possibly bad coatings. Go figure... it's the multi-coatings that cause fringing! Single coated lenses can actually be better for specific situations!

Needless to say there are better and worse coatings but the info is very interesting.

Interesting tidbit... multi-coating was invented in 1935?

Any government that has the power to correct any injustice and level any inequality also has the power to do ANYTHING it wants.
