A truly flawless magnifier – 15X Close-up Map Magnifier Reviews

posted by Impossiburu on 05/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very, VERY cost effective. This is not only tremendously cheap but also does the job perfectly. Provides excellent magnification and is big enough to use in large and small objects alike. Although the build quality isn't perfect, it's far from bad. I use it for appraising coins and relics everyday and does wonders. Focus calibration is perfect.
Cons:
Slight chromatic aberrations near the edges - this is to be expected, though.
Other:
In order to examine things properly it needs a good light source that the item (obviously) does not provide. Just shine a small flashlight through it.
Bottomline:
If you're thinking about getting it, don't. Just get it. It's that good!
