    Are you referring to the standard or the XLJ lenses?

    Ok, i'm not at home so i can't be 100% sure, but it really depends on a number of variables.

    I discovered that there are generation differences in the Flak XLJ lenses. Newer (i think) lenses seem to be longer and the part that sticks out, sticks out further. I don't own any standard lenses so i can't help you, but here are pics of the different frames and lenses i have in my collection.

    Flak is larger than the Half. Here's a Half Jacket XLJ sitting on top of the installed Flak XLJ. You can see the HJ lens is narrower temple-to-nose. Height is about equal.

    These HJ lenses are beat to ****....
