The BelOMO 7x22mm(0.866”) Triplet Loupe Magnifier has a viewing area of 0.65″ (17mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet Magnifier (see the image with both loupes for a size comparison). The large 22mm (.866″) 3 elements lens making up this achromatic triplet gathers lots of light to provide a bright, clear, and color correct view. The 7x power magnification provides the best magnification to depth of field ratio and is the most popular power for a handheld magnifier. The housing and cover have a matte black finish for gem grading. Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of telescopes, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacutures these loupes. These are optical quality lenses, each one inspected and certified just like a camera lens, that stand on their own against the higher priced competition. BelOMO loupes are assembled using screws rather than rivets which allows them to be adjusted. Make sure your BelOMO loupe dealer custom treats the screws to prevent the screws from working loose during normal usage. Don’t be fooled by cheap loupes selling for nearly the same price of MORE! Many don’t even tell the manufacturer. Why? Because they’re cheap imports from China, Japan, Taiwan or elsewhere which typically cost less than a dollar at import. If you don’t know the manufacturer how can you know the quality? Is each lens tested and does it include the certification just like a camera lens? Triplet means three lenses made of different types of optical glass bonded together and designed that, together, they straighten out the light that comes into the front of the loupe lens so that it’s the same when it leaves. Cheap import triplets are just three identical pieces of glass, not bonded, that distort the image. Often they are a single piece of glass with the magnification far below what is marked. 18 month warranty on BelOMO magnifiers sold by authorized US dealers.
