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

    Pros:

    Very well made jewellers loupe. It has glass lenses.
    Magnifies well, I enjoy using it to check out solder joints. Especially good for small stuff like smd components and to find hairline cracks in circuit boards. The big lens has a bright image.

    Cons:

    The combinations of lens diameter and magnification are a bit unusual. The smaller lens has higher magnification, but is less bright and distorts the view toward the edges a bit.
    It is bigger than a single lens loupe.

    OtherThoughts:

    I only really use the big lens. I like the folding mechanism a lot, it works well. Otherwise not much else to say....

    Bottomline:

    Worth the money, but a single lens loupe would be just as fine. so maybe you should buy one of those instead.
