Does anyone know of a good fish eye lens that works well with our phone

There are lots on ebay for very little money. Fisheye, wide angle and macro. But as for them being truly 'good'.... Thats a different matter. They are good enough for some different fun photos, but no good for professional use obviously.

One thing though, is that a lot attach via magnets on a sticky metal ring you place around the camera lens. I have one for my g2, and it needed to use 2 metal rings on top of each other as the magnet messed with the focus. With 2 rings, it is fine.

But, as the area around the lens is not perfectly flat, the rings on mine do not stay stuck and come off when removing the added lens. I'll try getting some pics of pics taken with it up.

Thanks that would really help. I'm assuming you have the Verizon variant because I believe the camera on it is not flat. I have the Sprint variant and it is flat so hopefully that won't be a problem

No I have the 802. By not flat completely, i mean the very slight plastic rim that goes all the way around the edge of the buttons/lens. It is a very small difference but enough to limit the stickiness a bit.

But nothing the right adhesive couldn't fix I guess.

Heres a link which shows some shots on a listing for the type I have -

Not strictly a fisheye, but on photos it does give a little fisheye effect oddly.

A generic search on ebay for mobile phone camera fisheye lens should give you loads of results.
