    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Clean lenses.
    Smooth operation of flip mechanism.
    Chroming of metal is ok.
    Lenses can be taken out of barrels for easy cleaning.

    Cons:

    The DX description(picture) says Triplet, five element etc. This is false.
    Effective aperture of 10x18mm is only 16mm

    OtherThoughts:

    Lens Elements: Both Singlet BiConvex,
    Diameter 17mm , Focalpoint ~38mm
    Diameter 13mm , Focalpoint ~28mm

    Bottomline:

    Handy tool I use for reading text on SMD electronics components.
    The price is too high since both lenses are singlets and not triplet and doublet like advertised.
