In addition to a new outer case to fit the iPhone 5's design, Schneider Optics developed the lens system to better fit with the iPhone 5 camera's higher resolution, improved lens and sensor.
The iPro Lens System includes five interchangeable lenses: a new macro, wide angle, super wide, fisheye and telephoto. The new super wide angle lens doubles the iPhone 5 lens' field of view and the new fisheye offers a 180-degree view. According to Schneider, the 2x telephoto lens was built specifically to take advantage of the iPhone 5's higher resolution.
The new two-part case slides on and off the iPhone and includes a handle that can be attached to the case and also stores the lenses when not in use.
The original iPro lenses for the iPhone 4 and 4S (which we reviewed last year) can be used on the iPhone 5 with the new iPro 5 Series 1 case.
