The Tele 58mm is designed for phones sporting a dual camera set up at the rear and will be able to use the lens for 4x zoom. The lens can also be used for phones with a single rear camera but it will only give 2x zoom. The interesting aspect is that the 4X zoom is comparable to using a 200mm zoom lens while the 2x zoom comparable to using a 100mm zoom lens. Moment notes that the 58mm length is “ideal for capturing faces in compelling and flattering compositions.” The lens will also give those into sports photography the chance to get closer to the action by using the zoom lens.
