New Sirui 18mm lens and older 18mm and 60mm lenses

So I've had the original 18mm and 60mm lenses by Sirui for nearly two years and since the Pixel 4 XL doesn't have a built-in ultra wide angle lens, the 18mm will still be useful for me to continue using. The 60mm lens I rarely used but it's nice to have and combined with the built-in telephoto lens, it's nearly 16x total zoom.

These are compatible with the Moment case however they do fit extra snug. So tight that it does seem to have scraped the mounting on the case but I don't think it'll get any worse.

With the new case I decided to order the 18mm version 2:

Nice it came with a case but it's laughably huge compared to my Moment case. I think it's because it a repurposed 3 lens kit case. The red lens is the original version 1. Rubber caps for the front and back are a nice touch.

Here's the unboxing pics:

I didn't do screen caps from video recording like I did in my original review (https://forum.xda-developers.com/pix...-wide-t3773470) but the wide angle is amazing for video too as there's a decent crop when shooting video with the lens.

I used my google store credit towards moment wide angle and was gifted a moment anamorphic today. Definitely excited about playing around with these.

Do you have the macro lens as well and can post some example pictures? Macro is much worser with Pixel 4 XL compared to Pixel 3 XL.

Thanks for this thread, mate. Would you mind posting pics of the case with the Sirui lenses attached to it, if possible?

I'll try to take a pic of the phone with the case and lenses on when I get a chance.

Looks like the images aren't appearing on the OP? The attachment links are there, but the images themselves don't display. Must be an XDA issue.
