      I already knew that the Agfa/Kalt loupe was just the product for my application. It was the service from B&H that impressed me most. I went to their site on Saturday evening to order the loupes for a business trip the next Thursday. Because of their faithful observance of the Sabbath I was unable to order the loupes till Sunday. Sunday too was a Jewish holiday so the store was closed. Despite this I received the package on Wednesday well in time for my Thursday departure and using standard shipping. That means that somebody really had to hustle to get my order out Monday morning.

      I have never been disappointed with the products I've ordered from B&H and am proud to do business with such a dedicated and knowledgeable firm.

      My original 1970s Agfa Loupe is sharp from corner to corner. This new one is much poorer in quality. Nothing is sharp although it gets close in the centre. It causes real eye strain when looking at contact sheets and is unusable on the ground glass of a camera.

        Comments about Kalt AGFA 8x Loupe:

        I have always had one. In the B&W darkroom other people like them too and I have lost many. I was happy to find B&H still have it so I got two. It is convient to look at negative before printing. I Run a Darkroom with 35 and 4 4X5 enlargers which we make beautful prints that will last 24 generations. It is a Leisure class but we do some great work in the Digital age. Our prints are timeless and priceless.

          Needed something for checking details on my negatives and contact sheets and this works just fine. Not top of the line but more than adequate for occasional use.

                    I thought I was going to have to buy one of the $40-50 loupes to get good quality but settled for this one because I didn't have the money. I was not disappointed! This loupe is absolutely perfect for figuring out which of your negatives are in focus from your contact sheet!

                    I black out the stand with gaffer tape and use as a focusing loupe for 4x5 and 8x10. Gets the job done perfectly for a fraction of the price of one with a prestige name.
