I don?t really do any SMD work, so $500+ for a good microscope vs $100 for a decent Binocular loop is a decision I need to make soon. Cheater glasses 2.5x used in conjunction with a large magnifier on an articulating arm just aren?t cutting it right now.

I use a Donegan OptiVISOR for soldering work. Model DA-4, 2X at 10".
