    Does anyone know of any attachable lenses that will magnify the built in DJI vision+ camera. I'm not looking for anything with zoom controls, just a fixed optical zoom. I'm thinking of something similar to one of these guys: http://www.olloclip.com/olloclip-iphone-telephoto-lens/, which I have for my phone. This would allow us keep a little more distance from our "targets". I think the benefits are pretty clear, and I'm pretty surprised that I can't easily find an available attachment.

    I think i saw at ragecams.com a replacement longer FL flat field lens for the P2v+. Its not an addon though.

    It looks like that simply flattens. From the demo videos I have seen, there is not much added zoom functionality.

    Yes it is a flat field no fisheye lens. The stock lens is something like 2.5mm or 2.8mm I think. The one I'm using is 5.4mm. Twice the 'zoom' and still at 10mega pixels on the sensor. The higher the focal length the less of the sensor is used so quality/resolution will suffer. In real terms 5.4mm is a lot narrower. 80 degree compared to stock lens of 140 deg.
