Carl Zeiss German-made quality

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MN Written on August 30, 2011
My wife and I have reached the age where reading glasses always have to be at-hand, and I still have a hard time seeing small details. She had a smaller 75mm cheap plastic hand magnifier which was not very effective. The reason is that it is just a bit too small to see well with both eyes, and there is a lot of distortion around the edges. Then there is the incessant glare from the ambient lights.

I bought her the 6 diopter 100mm aspheric magnifier, and the clarity is stunning. This is an excellent size for use as a general-purpose magnifier for looking at maps, reading the fine-print etc. Probably not strong enough for a stamp-collector or that kind of application. But there is of course a tradeoff - the stronger magnification comes at the expense of diameter, and she is happy with this size. So much so, that we bought two more for presents!

The anti-reflective coating is very effective - glad I opted for it, it makes a big difference.

Yes it is probably the most expensive magnifier out there, but given how much use it gets, and the superb manufacturing and optical quality, I do not regret paying this much for a magnifying glass.
Pros: Top-of-the-line optics
Cons: Very expensive...
Would recommend: Yes

Zeiss Optics Aspheric Hand Magnifier D6 Hard Coating

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 27, 2011
This Zeiss Optics Aspheric Hand Magnifier D6 Hard Coating is a high quality product. Right away, one can clearly see the difference using this magnifier compared to most average glass magnifiers. Getting the AR Coating version helps with avoiding glare from outside sources such as room lights. The price is a little on the high side, but this Zeiss magnifier is a quality product which should last one's lifetime.
Pros: High Resolution / Clarity / Exceptional Quality
Cons: Price is a little high...
Would recommend: Yes

Good Item, could been better

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NY Written on January 29, 2010
For what you get there ois so much so very much better, like the product but redicupous price in not ast all worth it.
Have a Brookstone illuminated magnifying class that in both solidness feel optics and quality completely blows this item away. And only at a minor fraction of the cost.
Pros: Nice feel, Excellent name
Cons: As new things come out they seem to be getting cheaper and cheaper in quality, old real craftsmanship has officially died...
Would recommend: No
