The worst iPhone lens ever. Or?

A couple of months ago I bought this telephoto lens from Dealextreme. I had very low expectations and my initial tests proved that it was even worse than I had in mind when ordering.

As you can see from the image the distortion is horrible and it doesn’t even cover the whole image.

But today I discovered a scene that would benefit a bit of telephoto.

…the machine between the houses. So I mounted the lens and did some experimenting.

I got closer. No doubt about that. And with Picture Show, Tilt Shift Generator, Camera+ and Photo FX I could have a bit of fun as well.

So, sometimes bad telephoto is better than no telephoto…
