Hi, everybody

Our lab is about to buy an advanced inverted microscope to use it with =
fluorescence immedeately and, later with the confocal accessory. =
Currently there are two offers, one from Leica and another from Olympus. =
We cannot buy from other companies since they do not provide good =
service in Russia. Also,  available funds keep us away from buying two =
microscopes, one inverted and another specialized for high-magnification =
applications. Yet,  our work requires high magnification at fluorescent =
mode (100x) in living cells. Both companies claim that their microscopes =
can afford this. Could anybody comment the quality of Leica's DMIRB/E =
and Olympus IX70? Which one is better in these critical applications? =
Which has better optics? Which is more conviniet for fluorescence?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
