Not me but you have my interest. I was thinking of something very similar for some family situations I have run into. My idea was to add some type of lens/optic to my Iphone via a specialized case. I was doing much the same thing with a Carson Iphone/binocular adapter and an Opticron monocular. The monocular's 8x magnification was a bit much but it was closer to what I needed than just the Iphone itself. My thought was that a compact 3x-4x lens would probably do the trick. Glad to see some companies are already looking into this.

By the looks of it, zeiss have released these lenses. They must be new?

Sadly they are no use to me as I have a Samsung

Certainly something of interest to me if zeiss decide to make them for samsung and others.

The iPhone7 plus has 2 built-in lenses, a 30mm-equivalent wide-angle and a 60mm-equivalent normal lens. Are there optical attachments available for increasing the latter's focal length, does anyone here know?

190 pounds, that's a lot of money to just double the focal length of a phone camera. Wouldn't it be better to put it into something like a Panasonic TZ80. Still fits in a pocket, possibly better than a phone with an add on lens attached, and it zooms to 720mm.
