Alright so, I've tried to capture the AR coating of all three lenses I have available at this moment. Comparison was necessary to underline the colour difference that quite well reflects the spectrum as seen with a naked eye/real life visual output.

Pics taken inside under artificial illumination.

3-Element lens.

G-2 lens. Note the colour pair of the neon bulb lights reflected.

GO-Like lens. Note the colour of the neon bulb lights reflected.

4x magnification comparison. 1xAAA 80lum white LED flashlight used as a reflection point under the microscope's objective. I made 100% crop images as well (can upload them here if required).

3-Element lens.

One last shot of the GO-Like lens reflecting the outdoor ambient light. Taken at the window, sky was grey dull.

This doesn't surprise me at all. With the three element lenses and the length that the light has to travel to focus you would see a large blue hue to these lenses, but the G-2lenses are single lenses and the AR coating is very thin..... maybe 1/2 wavelength of useable light and that coating won't jump out at you. The AR coating is there, after all, to cancel out any reflection from the laser light incident to the lens. I have seen the coating on these lenses and they are in no way what you would expect to see from a multi-element lens assembly.

Jim, I got the lenses today, and they were packed well and arrived in perfect condition. Thanks, buddy.
starlight, I got my O-Like lenses a couple hours ago and had to test them against the lenses I sent you. Great news! Using the same laser, 445nm 1750mW SkyRay the lenses for O-Like topped of at 1600mW while using the same laser and batteries the lenses I sent you top off at 1713mW. So, they are not the same lenses as near as I can tell from what I've done so far. Will have to test them all, but I tested the O-like twice first, then tested the ones I sent you last using the same batteries. So, make of this what you will. Paul

Got mine today. Clearly, thought and care was taken to both protect and ship in an economical manner. Thank you Jim.
