Dave:

Something you missed, or didn't know is that it has a touch screen.  Makes some actions a bit easier.

Didn't occur to me at all to try and touch it!, and Charles didn't touch the screen when he quickly demoed it before he loaned it to me.
I hadn't read the manual or web site etc  :-[

If the lens is quite expensive but reflective objects reflect IR quite well, why not use a curved mirror instead of a lens? After all, good telescopes always use a concave mirror as the first stage of magnification.
Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

If you want to use a symmetric mirror, than you have to position the sensor in front of that mirror, kind of like a catadioptric system (eg. telescope). This unit would have to be sealed to protect it from dust, so you would still end up with a fairly expensive plan parallel lens in front of the mirror. You might also run into issues if you try to design it for short focal lengths.

..and if you seal  it you need an IR transparent window.

My company bought the Flir E50 a couple of weeks ago to create themographic building reports. We bought the Extech MO297 with it, to measure the air humidity etc. The Flir E50 unfortunately doesn't have that capability. The brief pauses you experience when using the camera are caused by the calibration mechanism. You can hear a solenoid clicking when it covers the lens for a brief moment. See Mikes electric stuff: where Mike does a tear down and repair of a IR head mount fire-fighter camera.

The Extech MO297 has a IR thermometer as well and I am really curious as how this works? Maybe you could do an article on that?

Has anyone done a review of the new Fluke VT02 Visual IR Thermometer?  It looks interesting.

That's pretty damn useless for $399.
