{Summary}
Loupe / small folding magnifier 10X magnification, 21mm diameter lens.
Very good quality triplet lens, it's relatively heavy and not quite as good as the Quicktest 10X20 but you do get a whole 1mm more lens for your money.

Externally, what does this look like compared with loupes of the same lens size? 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.

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, loupes are used by jewellers and antiques traders for looking at very small marks; by horologists and engineers for inspecting very small parts; by stamp and coin dealers; as a basic field instrument for biologists and geologists.

Specifically, this is the best of all the large 10X loupes (apart from Zeiss and Eschenbach - see detailed reviews.) though, personally, I find this too large and heavy for my taste...but for those who want to show off the size of their loup - go for it!

{Alternatives}
Not powerful enough? We have many that are more powerful but "more powerful" does not mean "better quality" (sharpness, contrast and ease-of-focussing) - but if you want one that is more powerful, click here.
