Zeiss has been known for decades as one of the finest lensmakers for DSLRS and other cameras, but in 2016 the company is going small, with its first-ever lineup of lenses created just for the iPhone.

The first set of external lenses for the iPhone 6s include a telephoto, a wide-angle, and zoomable macro option that are poised to become one of the best options available for iPhotographers once they’re finally available in mid-2016.
