The loupe is a fake – Dual Side 10X 18mm + 20X 12mm Jewelers Loupes / Magnifiers Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The loupe is small
Cons:
The loupe is a fake: Triplet 10x and Five Elements 20x are only solid glas blocks, only thick lenses. There are many little bubbles and streaks in the glass. Objects viewed with the loupe are of poor contrast.
Other:
The loupe has not 10x and 20x. The magnification is defined as 250 mm divided by the focal length of the lens. I think the lenses have 5x and 10x. I think, many of the offered magnifiers have only half or less of the descipted magnification.
Bottomline:
It isn't worth buying this loupe
