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.

Hello,
I would love to buy some lenses for LG G2, but of course i dont understand it at all
Would you please be so kind and recommend me some of of ebay?( Im from czech republic so it would be awesome if it was shipping free)
- I have seen that ebay has some pretty cheap lenses, like around 5 dollars, do they really work ?(of cours not for professional photos, but just for fun as a little extra christmas present?)
- could you please send me direct link, like i said i dont understand it and i would love it if you could pick me some good (and cheap) ones
- could you also include any extra things that i need to buy for it to work?

Thank you very very much
Jane xx

What a coincidence, right today I was playing around with some old soviet SLR lens and one of them was pretty interesting - from one side it was working kind of a fish-eye lens, from the other side like a zoom one (prime lens, so the zoom was passive) with neat-o dof.

Anyway, I once had a cheap fish-eye lens from ebay, it was crap. The only good ones are expensive as hell.
