{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, an exceptionally powerful loupe, the optical quality is quite useable, but my personal opinion is that you can't get good quality with a large lenses with a very high magnification with a low price - it just isn't possible! However, for a quite 'OK' loupe at the highest magnification (and it really is 20X magnification) this is good value for money.

For gemstones and jewellery, stamps and coins, plant and insect samples, it's better to get a really good quality 10X loupe than one that is "very powerful", the quality will be better, the image will be crisper, the focussing will be easier, click here.
The most powerful loupes are never the quality of a microscope, click here. Or try a top quality and hands-free surgeon's-type magnifier, click here.
