Pocket inspection lens – 2-in-1 Jewellery Magnifier Reviews

posted by krishul on 02/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Clean lenses. Smooth operation of flip mechanism. Chroming of metal is ok. Lenses can be taken out of barrels for easy cleaning.
Cons:
The DX description(picture) says Triplet, five element etc. This is false. Effective aperture of 10x18mm is only 16mm
Other:
Lens Elements: Both Singlet BiConvex, Diameter 17mm , Focalpoint ~38mm Diameter 13mm , Focalpoint ~28mm
Bottomline:
Handy tool I use for reading text on SMD electronics components. The price is too high since both lenses are singlets and not triplet and doublet like advertised.
