Anti-Reflective Coating

 

Is it right that Anti-Reflective Coating has a hazy effect when looking at the lens on the light when turned on?

As the Romisen RC-N3 II(Given by fishinfool) and some other light that I own have  this effect

Can do. If looked at when unlit, it ought to give the same sort of effect as a camera lens.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

When I look at it when unlit it's clear. Looks like any other lens.Which light do you have that have this coating?

Unfortunately none with me. You can usually reveal coatings by strongly lighting them at a shallow angle. I bought some coated Mag lenses a while back.

 

If the glass appears not to be there when looking straight through it, it is probably coated.
