Nice loupe – 30x21mm Jewelers Loupe / Magnifier Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
This is a nice light loupe ideal for field trips. Solid metal and glass construction. I compared it with 2 other (more expensive) loupes that I own and it appears to be as good. Comes in a nice little plastic box.
Cons:
Not sure what the "30" means. Usually it refers to the magnification as in 30x, 10x etc. This one appears to be a 10x as it magnifies to the same extent as my 10x loupes. Normally I would wear these around my neck so a little bag would be better than a box!
Other:
I was taught that the best way to use these was to hold the loupe close to your eye and bring the object you want to look at up to the lens until it is in focus.
Bottomline:
Cheap loupe that does its job. Well worth the buying.
