I've just received mine (an hour ago). I bought both lenses. It's a commendable product in it's simplicity.

The only issue I've had with it is that on my iphone 3g the case is a compound curve where the lens attaches and the built in camera lens under the case is flat. This results in the add on lenses sitting at an angle to the fixed camera lens. The difference in angles causes part of the shot to be obscured by the structure of the add on lens.

This issue is listed on the FAQ on the photojojo site. Had I read the FAQ first I might have waited until I upgraded my phone. I have a shop full of machine tools and since I've bought the lenses, I may try making a new mount for the 3G phone.
