I put this material together so everybody can understand what
we want from a microscope as far as the lower
magnification is concerned and the illuminated field.
I hope you can benefit from it.
I don't want to do any microscope attack here just took the numbers
from the catalogs and try to show what we would see in reality.

HI, I think there might be a diconnect with what is in the manual or how it is
being worked out.
I havent had time to contact zeiss but just clikced a quick shot today to show
field of view on my lowest mag. (sorry about the poor quality of pic but it was
only to show field of view)
It seems so much larger than what is being quoted. I'm not sure if you really
need any bigger field of view.

Good morning Tim,
As I said in the begining I made some mathematical calculations so this
may not represent the reality. Now if you look my picture side by side,you will
see that I am not far from reality. You can only see until the first premolars
just lime my picture. Anothe consideration is that every patient has a
different arch size so mine may be larger than yours or vice versa. The ideal
setup would be to use the same model, same camera, adapter and take a picture
with all the scopes. I am sure that the manufactures would not like this....
Now if you don't see a need to see more under the microscope I can't do anything
about this. After so may year teaching microdentstry I learned that vision for
dentists is like a religion: you can't discuss because it is a personal belief.
I want to see the most that my scope can offer me so I can do more under the
scope, but if you are happy and I am sure that you are, me too.
Thanks for the picture and keep the excellent work that you do - Carlos Murgel
