Both are important. 

If material is of the wrong type you will not get the desired effect (for example, if the index of refraction of the material is actually greater than that of the glass in question, you will have more reflection, not less).

However, if the material is of the wrong thickness, you will only get a part of the desired effect: the itnerferometric component (destructive interference) will not work.

 HI, new to this site but have been a bird watcher for some time now. I bought a pair of Zeiss 8x56 FL-T last week and can tell you that after looking throught every high and mid end binoculars, they won hands down! Some had what i  though was  better ergonomics but none were better, if you wear eyeglass, than the Zeiss. I just love these binoculars!

Welcome, Ruble!  The Zeiss Victory FL is an awesome binocular for sure.  You made an excellent choice that will provide you with many years of incredible viewing.

 

Koshkin,

Thanks for the excellent information on coatings, refraction indices, and glass.
