The Grand Finale: M-Series vs. T-Series
As our adventure around Canada neared its end, the team gathered, eager to review our photos and footage on a bigger screen. The vibrant display and detailed video shots were a testament to both the iPhone 15 Pro Max and Moment’s lenses, and the images were truly noteworthy after a few hours of pixel-peeping.
Long story short, both the M-Series and T-Series lens lineups work beautifully on Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max. All you need is a Moment case and a lens of your choice to mount to your case and viola. However, it's in our best interest to give you the best opinions and feedback surrounding our products and their compatibility. So, while the M-series does work on the latest generation of iPhone 15 camera phones, our latest and greatest T-Series lenses do offer a clearer and vignette-free experience across both the Macro, Tele, Wide, Fisheye, and especially the Anarmophic mobile lenses. If you already own the M-Series, perfect! But, like all tech, we suggest upgrading if you can for the most optimal compatibility.
Below is a list of some FAQs we often receive in the inbox:
Q: Can I use the T-series mount with M-series lenses and vice versa?
Our lens mounts are not cross-compatible because the T-series lenses feature a 25% larger glass size, resulting in a larger mount opening. Consequently, it is impossible to attach the lens
Q: Can I use the 58mm and a T-Series lens on the 5x Tele camera?
The T/M-Series 58mm Tele is incompatible with the 5x 120mm iPhone 15 Pro Max lens.
Q: How do the M-series lenses work with the 24mm FOV on the main sensor? Is there any significant vignetting?
The M-Series lenses do have vignetting and softness around the corners of the frame at 24mm.
Q: How do the M-series lenses work with the 28mm FOV on the main sensor?
It looks slightly better but still notice softness at 28mm as well.
Q: What’s the overall sharpness of the M-series versions on the main sensor?
Overall the M-series is significantly soft on the 15 pro and pro max; the only lens still very clean is the M-series macro.
Ultimately, for those in a quandary between the M-Series and T-Series, the results from our test lean more toward personal preference. Both have their unique strengths, and the best pick ultimately boils down to the individual photographer's needs and style.
