Do the Burris FF2 and Signatures have the same lens coatings?

The FF2 have mulitcoated lenses. While all the lenses in a Signature are Fully Hi-Lume multicoated.

This is from Burris website:

1 Within the Signature Series is also a 3X-10X and 1.75X-5X which are both Three Times Zoom instead of Four Times.
2 All Burris scopes provide adequate eye relief for magnum recoil (3.5" minimum). Compact scopes offer at least 3.75" to 5" eye relief. In addition, the 2.5X-10X, Black Diamond Titanium, 2.5X-10X Euro Diamond, 2.5X-10X Signature Series scope all offer 4.25" - 4.75" eye relief.
3 Intense retailer competition creates pricing substantially lower than the manufacturers suggested retail price, so this chart tries to provide a realistic price range for all the various scopes within each category. The primary reason for the large price ranges is that each category has smaller less costly scopes as well as larger high magnification scopes which are much more costly to produce.
4 Every surface of every lense in every scope is Hi-Lume Multicoated.
5 Side Focus/Parallax Adjustment on 4X-16X, 6X-24X, 8X-32X.

 

Is that incorrect? Is Burris lying about this?

Thanks.

Ilya

OK here's the deal. I called Burris and asked what coating's were on each scope. I was told both models do have the Hi lume coatings. So the difference in a FF2 and a Signature is the glass. The signature's use a more expensive and better glass than the FF2's. Which explains the difference in prices between the two.
