Goot item with some weak points – Dual Side 10X 18mm + 20X 12mm Jewelers Loupes / Magnifiers Reviews

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

Pros:
-good optical design
-good magnification
Cons:
-the smaller lens is optically not perfect, there are some failures in it, like the material molded and distorted. Visible only if looking through the lens from big distance. If I put it directly before my eye, it is out of focus, and does not affect the image quality.
The other lens is OK.
-the hinges got flimsy after a couple of weeks average intensity use
Other:
If you want high magnification and narrow field of view, this item may be perfect for you. And you may be lucky, and even the little lens will be perfect.
It is far better than my previous lupes.
Bottomline:
May be a little cheaper... Then I'd buy another one.
