Really nice lens for a cheap price! – 2.8mm~16mm Fixed IRIS Lens Set for Webcams and Security/CCTV Cameras (6-Lens Pack) Reviews

Pros:
These lens are great to modify what your camera can see. I put the 2.8mm on SKU 17779 to make it able to see the face & chest of someone at the door, instead of the just seeing a little of their chest.
I also could get the 2.8mm, 3.6mm and the 6mm lens to work, the others would not bring me in focus (maybe if the subject was further away, but that defeats my purpose).
Cons:
The lens do not come with IR filters. If your camera has a night-time vision, then it will automatically switch to that and it will work fine in B&W mode.
The labels on the caps can easily fall off.
Other:
Like another poster said, likely you will only use one or two, unless you have multiple cameras.
Bottomline:
If you want lens, these are cheap, anywhere else you are likely to spend the same amount for just one. Get them!
