Peak 7x Loop

This page contains information on the No. 1975 Peak Scale 7x Lupe manufactured by Peak Optics.

Pros: Clear optics, good light transmission, sturdy construction.
Cons: Cheap case, wobbly focus adjustment, no documentation for inserts.

Final Score: 6/10

Documentation

The Peak Lupe comes with limited documentation:

Inserts

The Lupe comes with five inserts that assist in measurement.

Insert cap

The inserts are held in with a metal end-cap that screws into the threaded plastic.

Details

The inserts are well designed and quite useful.

Operation

The detailing on the inserts is crisp and clear.

Storage Case

The original case was flimsy and difficult to open. I elected to replace it with a Pelican 1030 Micro Case that holds the lens and the inserts safely.

Conclusion

This is a very handy loop. I bought it used for a reasonable price and I have been quite pleased with its performance. Many people I work with borrow it, and I am always corralling it back to my desk. There is room for improvement (built in lighting, better materials, high quality components), however, none of these upgrades would likely be worth the corresponding increase in price.
