    Does anyone have one that they would recommend? I went on Amazon.com and they're all 8x zoom or less.

    There was an amazing closeup photo of a cardinal posted on IG and the photographer said it was taken with a 10x zoom for iPhone that she got on Amazon for $25.

    Here are 3 shots taken with my telephoto lens, I've done no editing to them.
    1st is from the iphone standard
    [​IMG]

    2nd is iphone zoomed in
    [​IMG]
    3rd is telephoto lens
    [​IMG]

    I like that is has a manual focus adjust on it, I don't like the case the lens screws into it's very brittle plastic.
