F550 and F600 lens coatings?

dotbalm wrote, in another thread:

This lens coating has been portrayed as an improvement of the F600 over the F550 and IIRC was also briefly discussed WRT the X10 and yet they all list the same coating in the links below.
Identical coatings listed:

F550 http://www.fujifilmusa.com/...cameras/f/finepix_f550exr/features/page_02.html

F600 http://www.fujifilmusa.com/...cameras/f/finepix_f600exr/features/page_02.html

X10 http://www.fujifilmusa.com/...oducts/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x10/features/

X100 http://www.fujifilmusa.com/...oducts/digital_cameras/x/finepix_x100/features/

Those of us who use the F550 know that it lacks the lens coatings it needs. Whether Fuji specified them and the Chinese factory neglected to put them on, or whether they were insufficiently specified, we do not know.

KimL had a theory that the problem is not lack of lens coatings, but rather the failure to paint the inside of the barrel black. The thread in which he said this has since been deleted, as has OP vijay's account.

What do you think? Back in the film days I had a really sharp Konica Lexio 28-70, but stopped using it because my Minolta Riva (FZE) 28-75 had less lens flare, though it was not as sharp.
