Can anyone tell from these pictures if this is a real Mitutoyo?

Thats not even a close rip off. That is a fake. You can tell a legit one when in your hand. Actually most fakes don't even read the half thou which is a dead give away.

Ave hit on the biggest difference between the cheap calipers and the good ones - standby power consumption. My Mitutoyo calipers run many years on a battery. I also have a cheap caliper on my basement workshop shelf collecting dust. Goes through batteries so quick, its not worth the trouble of trying to keep it powered.

Love them Ave videos.

Sorry, I'm not trying to high jack this or say anything negative.

But the first thing that popped into my head was this.
