I purchased two of these mugs as Christmas gifts for friends and the box comes with a Prop 65 warning (required in CA) which states "This product contains chemicals known to the state of CA to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm." I am not really sure my friends would want to drink coffee or tea out of this with this warning on the box........ Besides the Prop 65 warning the cup itself is actually well made. Really looks like a camera lens and is pretty sturdy and heavy. But I am giving it a generous two stars since it was made with some sort of carcinogen that required a Prop 65 label. Super disappointing.
I bought two of these mugs for my favorite coffee-drinking, photo-taking couple. I can't really rate for quality, but my friends say the mugs have been mistaken for real camera lenses. Although I wish they weren't made in China and that they could go in the dishwasher, I think these mugs make great gifts, at an excellent price.
I expected this to be light weight, and it was cheaper than ******. I got this for my Dad for Father's Day, as a photographer he carries a camera everywhere he goes. It only makes sense that he'd have a coffee mug that looks like a lens and would fool people into thinking that he drinks his beverages from one of them. LOL
