I bought this lens as it was recommended by the BBC wildlife magazine so I hoped it would be a good lens for the price. However, I have found it very disappointing.

The field of view is distorted at the edges, leaving only a small field of view.

I bought a lanyard so that I could wear it around my neck, but the sharp edge of the eyelet snapped the thread on the second day of use.

The screw holding the lens cover and lens together has already become very loose and this is after 3 days of use.

If you want a lens to use more than just once or twice, then look for something better.

This is perfect for looking at plant identification which is what I am using it for. I have connected a small key chain on it & a necklace so it is easier to use in the field.

Having had this for a week and using it to identify mosses I can say with confidence that it's a nice lens for the price. It has a nice weight to it, which I didn't expect, other lenses I've used have been really cheap(supplied by my college)and light. The screws needed a bit of an adjustment as the action was bit stiff, other than that I have had no problems with he lens.

As with all hand lens the detail of the image depends heavily on the light quality and how well you are holding the lens; the field and depth of view is great as well as the clarity, which has only minimal distortion on edges, which is the be expected.

I'm a naturalist and my old eye lens recently fell apart. This was a replacement and is even better than my old eye lens, except that you cannot thread a lanyard onto the loop as it's blocked. A design fault, so thus 4 stars and it's a shame that although the lanyard and case are advertised for it, no-one seems to sell it.

This is a really nice product - I bought if for my sister, who is a botanist, for the close examination of plants. It came from (apparently) the manufactures in Germany, and turned up very quickly, well packed and at a competitive price.

This loupe is ideal for my requirements - identifying coins and artifacts found in the course of my hobby - metal detecting, I recommend this to anyone with similar interest.

Delivery time was well over what I have come to expect from Amazon. However the product arrived well packed in its purpose-designed carry-case. If you use one of these things frequently, as I do, it is a great help to have that case, as it keeps the glass fluff and grease free when sticky fingers hot from a leaf or a twig covered in mystery sticky stuff take it out to find out the cause of the messy bit of the horticultural problem.

An excellent clear magnifyer which I use for plant and flower study.
It is superior to stronger magnification but cheaper glasses I've used in the past. I think this is a case of you gets what you pays for!
