They say the best camera is the one you have with you, but sometimes the fixed lens on your smartphone can limit your creativity. So Zeiss, makers of some of the finest camera glass out there, is finally making high-quality external lenses for the iPhone 6s including a telephoto, a wide-angle, and a zoomable macro option.

Zeiss is obviously not the first company to introduce external lenses that enhance the limited optics of a smartphone’s camera, but the company’s new aluminum and glass offerings will almost certainly be some of the best options out there when available sometime around the middle of 2016.

In order to use the new Zeiss lenses with the iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus, and 6s Plus (and additional devices supported later on) you’ll need a way to mount them to your smartphone. So Zeiss has also teamed up with Fellowes’ ExoLens brand on a machined aluminum bracket that easily attaches to your device and allows the lenses to be securely screwed on and off as you swap them. The bracket will also feature a standard tripod mount, and a cold shoe for attaching other accessories so you can really up your photography game.

I am not a violent person, but if I saw someone reach into their bag and put this on their phone, I would have to resist the urge to punch them. Although they probably have done something in the past that would justify getting hit in the face anyways.
