Zeiss loupe, 10X magnification, 13mm diameter lens. Every now and again I compare this with other loupes, it is definitely the best. Is it worth extra money? Maybe.

Externally, what does this look like compared with other 10X12 loupes? Click on the picture then click on the picture of the selection of loupes - the lenses are all the same size (to within 1mm) but the casings and overall sizes are different.
