The Moment 58mm Tele Lens: A Game-Changer For Mobile Portraits
Moment’s stunning Tele lens for tighter, closer, crispier shots. Here's a full review of the new go-to mobile portrait lens.
Everybody's favorite go-to portrait lens for your smartphone is tack sharp and stands the test of time. A product we're incredibly proud of, here's our full written review of the Tele 58mm Mobile Lens for any smartphone.
It's our #1 best-selling mobile lens for a reason. With edge-to-edge clarity and a richer depth of field than what's available on your smartphone's native camera, the Tele 58mm withstands greater quality and better visuals for telephoto imagery.
But how? Why use additional glass on your Apple, Galaxy, or Pixel camera? The newer phones are produced with even more DSLR-like aperture range than ever before, so just imagine what results you’d find with it coupled with an telephoto length made from real galss. Images taken with the lens will show off a beautiful, vibey bokeh haze in the background while highlighting tack sharpness in the foreground.
- An example of f/1.8 aperture on a smartphone's wide-angle lens, giving you more depth.
- An example of f/2.4 aperture on the smartphone'sultra-wide lens, resulting in less depth.
You’ll undoubtedly receive an enriched depth of field with the ultra-wide f/1.8 aperture alongside our 58mm focal length. You can clearly see the difference in the background’s creamy bokeh below:

Tack Sharp, Edge-To-Edge
Maximizing sharpness was one of the biggest priorities when rebuilding this wide mobile lens. Many telephoto lenses produce an unforgiving haze around the frame's edges, drastically affecting its quality. Due to our lateral chromatic aberration, increased resolution on the axis, and layers of lens coating — this tank is as solid as it gets without creating unwanted vignetting. It takes your already-great camera and gives you twice as much picture.
Single vs. Dual-Lens Camera Phone Comparisons
Mobiles creatives are now equipped with 4x capabilities when mounted over the iPhone and Galaxy's 2x lens and 2x optical zoom when mounted over a single lens or the wide side of a dual lens. Single-lens cameras also have enhanced portrait mode when searching for excellent bokeh and creamy textures.
But because the 58mm is perfectly optimized for dual-lens cameras, we wanted to field test if single-lens phone cameras would withstand high enough quality. And, obviously, it totally does...
Shooting Tele on Tele? Try Manual Focus
If you’re choosing to 4x your images by mounting the 58mm to your phone’s native tele lens (if it has one!), we absolutely recommend using manual focus. In our Moment App, you can manually select which point in the frame to be the center of attention, giving you full manual control of the creative process and honing in on specific details of your 58mm.
‘Cause, let’s be honest — sometimes our phones’ cameras are not optimized for 4x capability. It’s best to hand-operate each feature precisely to capture what we want with starch results.
And if you haven’t downloaded our app yet, what the heck are you doing? (Jokes). (Kinda).
And Yup. The 58mm Can Hold Its Own.
Portrait photography musters a variety of different artistic tastes. Moment’s beloved filmmaker and photographer, Taylor, took the lens on an exciting field test down South and asked herself if a lens/phone combo can truly hold its own like her DSLR…
The results? I mean… just see for yourself:
- Works with Apple, Google, Samsung, and OnePlus devices
- Maximum 4x optical magnification
- Quick to remove
- Phone not pocketable with lens attached
- Needs a Moment case
This lens is a breathing unit of art of its own. Enhanced with excellent build quality, upgraded optics for premium shooting, and a muster of focal length options for any portrait or landscape photographer — we’re proud to show this baby off.
