Zeiss Jumps Into iPhone External Lens Arena

Zeiss has partnered with Fellowes ExoLens to announce three new accessory lenses for mobile phones. The new lenses are characterized by the case design, which features smooth surfaces made of black anodized aluminum. Zeiss needs no introduction in the photography market, but they are claiming the new products offer the best optics in the mobile phone market.

Dr. Winfried Scherle, Executive Vice President of Carl Zeiss AG, touts, “the lenses by Zeiss are the best currently available on the market. We have achieved the best possible technical balance between a small size, low weight and high image quality.”
The lenses are attached to the device-specific ExoLens machined aluminum bracket using a screw thread. The ExoLens bracket features a standard tripod mount (1/4″-20) as well as a cold shoe for mounting accessories. At launch, ExoLens with optics by Zeiss will be available for AppleĀ® iPhone 6/6s and Apple iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, with the goal of adding more smartphones in the future.

The Zeiss/ExoLens system will be available this Spring. No official pricing has been announced.
