Photography accessory maker Olloclip today introduced three new photo lens kits designed to fit the new iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, giving iPhone users more ways to improve their photographs. The Core, Active, and Macro Pro lens sets offer macro, wide-angle, and telephoto lens options, and feature an updated Connect interchangeable lens system.

Like previous Olloclip lenses, the new iPhone 7 lenses fit precisely over the rear and front-facing cameras, quickly snapping into place. A hinged lens base swivels so it can be moved between both cameras, and it's able to work with screen protectors up to .5mm.

The Core Lens Set, priced at $99.99, includes a 180 degree fisheye lens, a 120 degree 4-element wide-angle lens for landscape-style photos, and a 15x macro lens for getting close-up shots. Olloclip is also offering a bundle with the Core Lens that includes an Ollo Case, which is a case designed specifically to work with the lenses.

The Active Lens Set, priced at $119.99, includes a 2x telephoto optical zoom lens, which is able to further enhance the built-in zoom of the iPhone 7 Plus. It also includes an ultra-wide 155 degree lens, which Olloclip says gives an "action camera" field of view.

The Macro Pro Lens Set, priced at $79.99, features three different magnification levels: 7x, 14x, and 21x. According to Olloclip, its macro lenses feature edge-to-edge clarity, less pincushion distortion, and InstaFocus hoods for automatically getting the right depth to capture a clear image.

Each of the three lens sets include a wearable Pendant Stand to keep the lenses close at hand and to create a quick pocket-sized tripod.

All of Olloclip's lenses can be pre-ordered from the Olloclip website starting today. Shipments will start in early November, with the new lenses offered at Apple, Best Buy, and other major retailers around the world.

Don't attach OlioClip lenses to a jet black iPhone 7. You will regret it.

Doesn't look like it works with both at once.. it covers one of the lens with their lens. I could be wrong here but I assume portrait mode will not work with these either.
I would have to assume this too, and that goes for any third party lens - Moondog Labs, iOgrapher, Moment etc.

Given all these lenses work by being placed directly over the iPhone's lens, they need to be centered to work correctly.
It would seem you can't physically center a lens over the two lenses of the iPhone 7 Plus (to be able to use them both with the third party lens) - you would be restricted to using one of the iPhone's lens or the other.
The manufacturers would have to figure out a way that the lens could be 'shifted' into place in order to use both iPhone lenses.
This of course mean a manual process where you would need to choose which iPhone lens you wanted to use for that shot.
Thoughts?

I am very curious as to how this would work with the dual lens

I assumed that you'd have to flip the lens' "cartridge" in order to switch between regular and telephoto. And no, I don't think the depth of field effect would be usable.

This says 7 Plus compatibility. Does that me I can use the 2x on top of the 2x for 4x telephoto?
The Active Lens Set ('https://www.olloclip.com/shop/shop/iphone7-active-lens-set/'), priced at $119.99, includes a 2x telephoto optical zoom lens, which is able to further enhance the built-in zoom of the iPhone 7 Plus.
