With just a little practice this lens can really enhance your iPhone photography experience. The case fits quite snugly and is difficult to get on and off until you get used to it, as is mounting and removing the lens, as it takes practice to get it threaded on properly so it fits straight. The case that comes with the lens is substantial, but offers little protection for the front of the iPhone. Sandmarc has just released a new iPhone 12 Pro case which I hope will be protective enough that I can just leave it on the iPhone and not have to switch cases each time I want to use the macro lens. That being said, the image quality is excellent, and the lens and case are both very well made.
I loved the product, I would only recommend a harder protective case for it, The small cap of the lens got lost the very first day I used it.. I’m a careful person and I’ve never lost a lens cap before, but most lens I’ve previously owned had a hard protective case that allowed me to manage my gear in a more controlled way, I don’t know at what time the small cap fell of from the bag that was included with the lens, I’m using the same bag to keep the clip, I just hope the lens doesn’t get scratched or something now.
