If they're aixiz lenses in the standard M9x.5 housings, the glass lenses will be longer and the housings will be made of a blackened brass. The aryclic lenses will be shorter, single element, and the housings are black plastic.

The aixiz acrylics I have also have no noticeable AR coating. The reflections off the glass lenses should have a noticeable tint. 405/445 will have a yellowish tint and 650 lenses will have a blue tint.

Well,sorry for the stupid question but what's a M9x.5 housing? Is it a normal 5,6mm aixiz module?

No, it's the the casing the actual optic is held in that screws in to the aixiz module.

Allright, so a M9 is a LENSES casing that fits into an aixiz module, right?
