{Summary}
Loupe / small folding magnifier 10X magnification, 23mm diameter lens. Medium-szie, medium-quality, average price, quite OK, in fact...quite average. In fact, not at all bad for just £12.50, and if that really is your budget, this is quite a good choice.

{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 a really large lens, quite reasonable (though far from excpetional) optical quality, a good choice if you want a large lens with 10X magnification, and yet is is lightweight copared with the 10X21 (really it is, belive me).

{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.
