  • Not perfect, but good value and it works.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Comes packaged in a cardboard box, containing a plastic holder box
    - Two sides, 10x-18mm and 20x-12mm
    - Hinge to swing out the lenses feels solid, unlikely to break
    - Machining is done well, no unexpectedly sharp edges. Feels solid.

    Cons:

    - Plastic holder box will not withstand much abuse. You probably should not sit/stand on it, but it will help keep it from getting knocked about in your bag.
    - Some aberrations at the edge of the lenses, but it's tolerable for the price. Just use the centre.
    - Metal is too glossy (well done!), picks up fingerprints.
    - On arrival, lenses were not very clean. Quite a lot of dust specks.

    OtherThoughts:

    - I can't verify the magnification ratios, but there's definitely a difference between the 10x and 20x side.

    Bottomline:

    - For the price, the cons are worth it.
    - Would recommend to others.
