Does anyone have experience of Zenith microscopes? They seem to be made by LOMO but also seem to have a reputation for good value and consistent quality.
The model I am considering is the Zenith Ultra-500LM Laboratory Microscope, which is available in the UK for 310.00.

Regards,

David

David, have you searched and asked on usenet? IIRC there used to be a group named something like sci.microscopy.

Cheers,

Dan

"They seem to be made by LOMO but also seem to have a reputation for good value and consistent quality."

I think of Lomo as a reputable optics company that makes specialised high-end lenses for all kinds of purposes, at comparatively low prices. A number of them are made to be sold by other companies at fairly high prices (ie motion picture lens prices), with their origin kept quiet.

Best,
Helen

...or... you could get yourself a nice Wild-Heerbrugg, Nikon or Olympus, second hand on ebay for about the same price... it's up to you, of course!
