This is the model-of-the-moment that you see at fairs and market throughout the UK, possibly the worst quality loupe of this size that I've seen, but gosh, just look at the price! It even comes in a nice plastic box.
All that said, if you don't have anything to compare this with, you will say, "Wow, it makes everything look bigger!" - and you will never know that the sharpness, contrast and colour-balance are so poor compared with other loupes.
Suggestion: I you are a market/eBay trader, buy LOTS of these from us and resell them.
