    Occasionally they come up used. My friend just picked up the Peak 1 on the LF forum for $70 USD. A few scratches on the mirror but nothing to alter performance. If it were worse a new mirror is only $20.

    I agree, I got mine on ebay for $56. They can be had for very little if you shop around and be patient. Don't let the fact that you don't have one yet interfere with your image making, though. Yes, it is nice to have one, but it should not prevent you from working at all.

    I found one on largeformatphotography.info I think. For cheap. Great shape, the top of the line model, for somewhere between $50-75. I forgot. I watched ebay for awhile for one. Should be able to get it for <$100 there.

    A very wise man ... being able to see the grain at the edges, not just a small area in the center makes it worth it.

    I'm going to be picking up a device to help with focusing as well. What's the difference between a Peak and a Bestwell Microsight? I was looking at a Peak 3 or Microsight 25x...Peak is only 10x but costs more. Is there going to be a big performance difference?

    There are 3 versions of the Peak. 2000, 2020, or 2030. Also known as I, II, and III. The 2000/I can look 30 degrees off axis. The II does 20 degrees and the III does 10.

    The Omega is a rebranded Peak I'm pretty sure. Don't know which model though. The I has about a 3" long mirror.

    I'm not sure what the history is, but I'm fairly sure these were sold under the Omega brand long before there was a Peak brand of photographic optical accessories, though it may be that the manufacturer has been the same all along.

    Very well. The designs are similar (the same?) so I assume someone is rebranding someone.

    I have to admit, Omega/LPL/Saunders/whoever is very confusing to me. What's the history there?
