New Prism

I'm intrigued by the appearance of what seem to be a protruded grinding on the LHS front of the new prism - has anyone else noticed this or is it just an optical illusion?

Probably just a side effect of making the prism out of Unobtainium.

It's reflection , looking at the angle of incedence will give us the clue.

Just an optical illusion, just look at the bottom edge of the prism, it's straight line, it doesn't protrude

Re: New Prism

It looks similar, albeit from this angle having less reflected surfaces, with the K-3 pentaprism, below.

Re: New Prism

Hi ozdean,

If you had included an image or a pre-K-new to compare one to one, that would have been useful.
