Now that I’ve had a chance to bring this lens out to take photographs, I can now share some images I’ve taken. I have to say that I like telephoto lenses, as I am always thinking that the reach of my camera lens could be longer. Hence I’ve had to rethink how I use my iPhone camera with this lens on.
First an image to illustrate the difference between the image captured with the iPhone 6 plus camera without and with the Moment wide-angle lens.
Next is a shot of a wall to show the corner sharpness and demonstrate the lack of vignetting with this lens. There seems to be only a tiny amount of corner softness with this lens, and I am wondering if this could also be due to the lens mount I have on my iPhone not completely aligned properly (this was not an issue with my Moment telephoto lens).
Now some photos taken with the Moment wide-angle lens.
I would say that I am not a fan of wide-angle lenses, which is why I did not own anything wider than 24mm until I bought the Moment wide-angle lens. It is very sharp in the center, and is pretty impressive even at the borders and corners compared to the much cheaper and smaller add-on lenses for iPhone.
Would I buy this again?
At the price I bought it for (£40), the answer would be yes.
Would I recommend this lens to other iPhone users?
It depends on whether you are likely to use it. Yes if you intend to do street photography or group photos on a regular basis, no if you don’t as you will not get as much use out of it.
