      Comments about olloclip Telephoto + Circular Polarizing Lens:

      I got the entire kit - and this review applies to all of it - 10x macro, 15x macro, wide-angle, fish-eye, 2x zoom and circular polarizer. This is a great deal from B&H. Comes with a nice little pouch where - with a little ingenuity - one can fit in all these elements.

      Positives: good image quality. Now, I don't have an optical lab to test like the pros do, but the basics (image quality, resolution, fringing, vignetting, distortion, etc.) are all good.

      Negatives:
      A. cumbersome handling. It all works great when sitting at a desk, being able to lay out the various elements and deciding, with warm, clean fingers, what to mount. Out in the field, however, the modular set-up becomes a hassle. You have to take apart the various elements (e.g. to get to the macro you have to unscrew the wide-angle, then store it somewhere without losing it). Further, to add the polarizer, you need a spacing ring, which again is hard to mount, as it changes from lens to lens. When you're finally done, you probably lost your shot, and you have a bunch of loose lens parts in all your pockets. If your subject is still there, be sure to do a check for fingerprints on your lenses and the polarizer. It requires a considerable skill to assemble everything without leaving fingerprints...

      B. lenses and modules aside, I wonder whether the basic concept of mounting it all on a plastic that fits over the edge is the best set-up. The problems I encountered while using it on my iPhone 5s are as follows:

      1. the plastic corner covers the off-button. So if you are done taking pictures you either have to either take everything off (see problems described under A. above) or you stick your iPhone in your pocket un-locked and take another few dozen pictures of the inside of your coat :)

      2. the same corner also covers some buttons/symbols on the iPhone's photo menu. You can get around that by rotating the phone, but it's annoying.

      3. if you use a screen protector and/or a case, you'll have to navigate those. The screen protector can obviously stay on, but you have to slide the plastic corner over it VERY gently so not to injure it or make it come off. If you use a case, or just a "bumper frame" like I do, then you have to remove that before being able to use any olloclip products. Also annoying.

      I guess I would favor a different design, one where the lenses are built into a case, like the iZZi Gadgets Slim Case, which B&H also sells. But I haven't seen that other than on the web site and I have no usage experience (yet), so don't take this for an endorsement...

        Comments about olloclip Telephoto + Circular Polarizing Lens:

        I was sceptical at first, especially at the price, but was pleased to find this a quality product and very useful camera attachment for the iPhone.
        The polarizing filter is great and dramatically improves outdoor shots. The telephoto is very good and just the right range for handheld operation and portrait photography.
