    It's obvious these attachments and lenses are not for us with other cameras but for people who only have iPhones and have no interest in buying other cameras and who may want to use such attachments and lenses. No big deal, makes perfect sense.

    The big lenses are a weird idea, but the kit of 3 little lenses (fisheye, wide angle, and a telephoto) looks pretty good. I showed it to my wife and she got real excited. She got an iPhone 4s a couple weeks ago and has mentioned that it would be good if it had some kind of zoom capability. They would fit nicely in her purse.

    that right there is the problem of modern day "photographers"

    The little keyring kit I understand, but if you're going to carry a 300 tele, an slr body doesn't add much to the kit vs. the phone.

    I noticed a banner for one of these systems on Schneider's site while looking up vintage lens data. Even the established lens makers are jumping on the band wagon I guess.

    Okay, that does it for me. I'm selling all my equipment and buying a iPhone and a few lenses and opening a photo studio. Maybe I'll keep my Majestic tripod as I need something very substantial to hold the iPhone.

    I want an adapter that lets me use my Android Smartphone as a digital back for my RB67 .

    Do you think you would need an optical element or two to make it work?

    The tiny sensors on the phone cameras do lead to a lot of depth of field. So if one is going to be shooting macro images for internet usage anyways, a macro accessory might make more sense.

    These people love their cameras and are finding all possible and impossible uses for it. Just like APUG, isn't it?

    it's not a camera, it's a phone.

    would you get a surgery by someone using a kitchen knife? it cuts flesh, just like the scalpel does. what's the big difference?

    These people are playing, not working in an area critical to someone else's health. Art is, in a sense, play.

    Ok, perhaps the example was a bit extreme, what I'm saying is that there's a tool for every job. Mimicking the tool won't get it done better. If at all.
