No, it doesn't seem to be. Based on a few earlier exchanges posted here I
recently took a black magic marker to my brighten illumination window (gasp!
horrors!)...I have a black dot :-) in about the middle quarter of the window
and find that it does reduce that white flare in the rangefinder patch a
bit, while only having the most minimal effect on the bright lines...It's
still not perfect, but it is a bit better....
