This one is 15X
The diameter of the lens is 21mm

This is the best quality large 15X loupe. My personal opinion is that 15X is a bit too powerful for most applications and 21mm diameter is a bit too large to maintain the quality. But if you want a 15X and you want a large loupe, this must be your choice.
