Nice set of webcam lenses – 2.8mm~16mm Fixed IRIS Lens Set for Webcams and Security/CCTV Cameras (6-Lens Pack) Reviews

Pros:
Nice set of lenses in nice set of different focal lengths. Used the 12mm lens on a webcam pointing on a birdhouse in the garden.
Cons:
There are no infrared filters on those lenses. I was lucky and was able te remove the infrared filter of the original lens. I used sticky tape to attach it to the 12 mm lens.
Other:
DX should add a infrared filter to this lenses. They could even add 1 infrared filter that you could mount on top of the lens. You won't use all the lenses, so one or two mountable lenses should be enough
Bottomline:
Great lenses, but if you're webcam has its infrared filter attached to the original lens, you're webcam is almost useless with one of this lenses. But if you are able to use the original infrared filter, or the infrared filter is attached to the CCD, this are all the lenses you will ever need for you're webcam.
