Good lens. – 75mm Optical Glass Lens for Flashlight/Spot Light Reviews

posted by jbrols on 02/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Looks to be very clear glass. I bought one, and it has much, much less molding defects than the one I got from one another place with a word "Good" in its name. Used it in a homemade flashlight.
Cons:
It's not perfect, but I don't think, that molded lens could get much better. The outer rim is not round, but has some irregularities, that makes it more difficult machine a tight fit housing.
Other:
It is NOT 75mm diameter, but more like 78mm. The thickness is also almost 30mm, not 26mm. This may not be a bad thing, if you don't plan to put it in some pre-made housing. It's really sadly, that I wasn't able to purchase this lens the first time because of issues with Paypal express checkout, so I pretty much wasted my money on some bad quality lens from another store.
Bottomline:
Hope these lenses will get only better in time...
