Multicoated glass windows is available for M2/3/4 now @yyecamera.com

I just came across Youxin Ye website (yyecamera.com) and notice he now has a new multicoated glass windows available for M2/3/4. Just curious if anyone already tried it ? I'd like to hear the experience from user point of view before pulling the trigger. Cheers

Seems like a bit of overkill for an M2 to M4, unless you're having unusual flare issues or it's a replacement for a broken part. I've never once had flare problems on my standard (uncoated) M3, given that it was internally designed not to flare.

Another consideration is that if you've ever tried cleaning fingerprints off one of the new multicoated finders (i.e. M7 to M9), they just get smudged around! It's a real pain. With uncoated finders like the M3, you can just wipe it off with a cotton shirt and it's fine.

It's a good idea for the older Ms. I like my M3 the way it is but I can see the attraction.

Installed it on my M4 BP while I was CLA-ing it. The result was better contrast and less flaring, more inline with a coated VF like MP-2. Well worth the $90 IMO. Have not found cleaning a problem, I just use microfiber and fingerprints, etc. - come clean off.

Makes a big difference on my M2. I would highly recommend it if you get a lot of whiteouts in the rangefinder.
