David,

This site http://a700.ic.cz/ has screen dumps of the comparisons
screens that I saw earlier when they were live and they say Mirror
for the 100 and Pentaprism for the 700.

It certainly does - so why do the specs say 'new internal coating'? A glass prism can only have an external coating. Unless they mean a new multilayer coating between the glass and the mirror deposition (the prism doesn't actually need mirror coating to function, but most prisms can be improved by mirrorizing the surfaces).
