If you are tired of paying the high prices your current optics supplier is charging, or you are sick of buying lenses only to discover they do not fit your camera or microscope as precisely as they should, you may want to consider ordering custom optics from an optical lens manufacturer instead.
There are so many benefits to doing so, and the lenses you eventually get will make you much happier than any you have had before.
Fast prototypes — Many of the optical lens manufacturers allowing you to order custom optics are able to produce the prototype for your specific order very quickly. That means you can take a look at it, and be absolutely sure it is exactly what you need before you have to pay for it. If it is not, the manufacturer will change it until it is.
Fast manufacturing — Many manufacturers that specialize in custom optics also offer very fast manufacturing on the lenses you need. In some cases, they may be manufactured and shipped to you just as fast as from your previous supplier that was not custom making your lenses. Find out from any manufacturer how long a typical custom order takes before placing an order.
Absolutely precise measurements — If you have used lenses for quite a while, you are probably used to having lenses that are ‘good enough’ but not as perfect as you would like them to be.
With custom optics, however, your lenses will be absolutely precise when manufactured. To the point that they will fit your equipment better than any other lens you have ever bought.
Working with sales executives — When you custom order optics, you will usually be assigned a sales executive who will then work with you every step of your order. He will then be there to follow up with if you receive your custom optics and there is a problem with them.
You do not get this level of attention when buying generic lenses from most manufacturers. Not unless you are buying in bulk. With custom optics, however, you get a level of attention you may not have experienced before.
Buying custom optics overseas — If you are tired of the high prices you are currently being charged for the generic lenses you buy, then you also have the option of buying your custom optics overseas.
There are many good optical lens manufacturers that design and manufacture custom optics to international requirements, and that will produce custom optics that are such high quality you may be amazed. Particularly when you see you are getting them for less money than you were for the generic ones you bought off the shelf.
Look at some of the optical lens manufacturers in China and in other parts of Asia. They design and manufacture custom optics that are better than the generic lenses you have bought in the past, will be shipped to you quickly and will fit your equipment better than any lenses you have owned before.
