    5.5oz (157 grams) for the Chamonix holder. Note this is one from a Saber - it has a few brass inserts in it - I am not sure how much those weigh (not much) and/or if their regular holders have those...

    Re: Loupes Again, What Works for You

    a 50mm lens for a 35mm SLR can be very cheap and well built, and is about an 8-10x loupe, that's what I use.
