Magnetic Lens

Here is the little lens I found in the dusty corner of a Spanish camera shop – I paid a fraction of the crazy price the friendly sales person first suggested. It is proving to be useful – I was not able to find something like this online, but I will keep looking. The sets that I have seen online are either wide, telephoto or macro – I think this one is working out to be equivalent to about 70mm (in 35mm terms) but have not really compared it. Will test it some more and post further details. Because of the rounded surface of the 3G IPhone the circular mounting┬ámagnet┬áhas been bent to adhere, but it all still works. I am surprised how strong this little magnet is, holds the lens well, even though it does not come in to contact all the way around.
