Sorry guys, but it's probably not a glass prism

Because the leaked specifications clearly state it has a new INTERNAL COATING. That mean's its mirror prism, with improved reflective surfaces. You can not coat glass internally.

Now of course they could have got the wording wrong, but the other specs which used the 'roof mirror pentaprism' term (Sony's language for a porroprism) made it unlikely it would be a solid glass prism, and this one just backs that up.

So don't get annoyed and disappointed if they turn out to have made a brighter, better mirror prism and not fitted a glass prism.
