We are planning on purchasing new microscopes for our introductory biology clas
ses.  The top runners are: the Leitz ATC 2000, the Nikon YS2, the Zeiss Standar
d 16, and the Olympus CH2.  They are optically comparable.  The decision will c
ome down to which one is likely to last the longest with minimal repair problem
s caused by eager, yet sometimes brutal UGs.  Any advice by experienced users w
ould be greatly appreciated.
