I bought this lens for a Local Flora and Fauna class I am taking this spring. It was simple and the only one I could find that was not some ridiculous magnification. I enjoy that I can change the magnification at will as well. It's small enough to fit in my pocket, but doesn't not seem to be easily broken, which is a nice bonus. The shipping was quite fast; I was pleasantly impressed. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and the process of it's purchase.
This magnifier consists of three 5x lenses. The idea is that when all three are used at the same time they will magnify 15 times. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. When you use all three at once the magnification does not increase much and the distortion is untenable. I want to take mine apart and have three perfectly good 5x lenses so I can give two of them away.
The loupe definitely has 3 5x lenses.... however i'm not convinced that the magnification stacks with each lense added. It is almost like it magnifies but zooms out. I'm not sure how to say it. It is DEFINITELY not 15x magnification with all three. I have another 5x magnifier from carolina and it zooms better than 1,2, or even 3 of the lenses. Not that happy with the purchase, but it will come in handy.
