I did have a cheap-as-chips set of lenses for my IPhone which my husband purchased for me as a little gift which were excellent. When I finally lost them i'd vowed to purchase the olloclip to replace them, however I was concerned about the price of the olloclip. I couldn't see how spending five times the price of my old lenses could be justified if the cheap ones had done such a good job. As soon as I opened my parcel I understood. There is a weight and build quality to the olloclip that was very reassuring. The first photos taken with the macro lens (my favourite and most used) were mind blowing. I'd never noticed just how much my old lens suffered from distortion. This one produced such good images I can honestly say, if you're serious about getting a set of decent lenses for you iPhone, the olloclip is the only one that really delivers!
