Sirui Mobile Lenses
The updated Sirui lens line consists of three options made with German-manufactured Schott optical glass. The glass incorporates a multilayer, antireflection coating for high levels of light transmission. It is also said to offer precise color rendition and reduce vignetting and distortion.
The all-metal construction of the lens housing is designed to provide durability for years of use. Moreover, the bayonet on the base of the lens is compatible with the family of cases and adapters. The lenses also have an added pin to secure the lens better. Each lens comes with a front lens cap and a protective Sirui hard case with attached carabiner.
With the average focal length of today’s smartphones at about 29mm, Sirui lenses are designed to adjust that focal length to 18mm, 60mm and to a fisheye perspective. In addition, the new line of lenses is available in three colors: black, red and blue.

Sirui Wide-Angle Circular Polarizer Filter
This polarizer filter, model SU18WACPL, is offered to accomplish three main objectives. First, as a polarizing filter, it cuts out the glare in a scene.

Second, the polarizer filter helps to saturate colors, which is useful when shooting a landscape. Third, the polarizer filter can improve the color of the sky in photographs. Polarizers will deepen the blue sky and brighten clouds for greater contrast and color rendition. SRP: $19.94.
