What is important in a loupe?
Weight

Lighter loupes are more comfortable and on the long run will reduce muscular tensions and thus complications. Ultra-light loupes offer the greatest comfort.

Depth of field 

Area that is visible and the focus, while looking through the magnifying glass (“y” in the drawing).

A loupe with a long working distance, will have a larger depth sharpness, and vice versa.

A loupe with a lower magnification factor has a greater depth of field, and vice versa.

High-end loupes use high-performance oculars conceived to provide an extra large depth of field (up to 120 mm).

  • Short  28-38cm (11-15”)
  • Reg  36-46cm (14-18”)
  • Long  43-53cm(17-21”)
  • X-Long 50-60cm (20-24”)

 

Optical quality

Resolution: Ability of an optical system to differentiate images of objects that are separated by small distances and to detect fine details.

Colourmetric Shift: Longitudinal Chromatic Aberration, also known as “LoCA” or “bokeh fringing”, occurs when different wavelengths of color do not converge at the same point after passing through a lens. Because each color gives a different wavelength, uncorrected optics cannot focus the different wavelengths in different points in space.

Deformation of the image: An object that is seen with a magnifying glass that has a spherical aberration, appears bent or spheric. The lines are not straight.

Depth-of-field: Area that is visible and the focus, while looking through the magnifying glass (“y” in the drawing).
