This one is 15X
The diameter of the lens is 12mm

Detail

My personal opinion is that if you want a loupe that is more than 10X magnification, go for a 15X rather than a 20X, and go for the absolute-best quality / smallest lens (this one is 5-element, better than than the usual high-quality 'triplet' lens).

It is, however, a small lens. You will always (with any loupe) have to compromise between lens size and optical quality.
