    Is there any case that protects the lens well.

    Im thinking of getting a 4S and looking at my 4 the camera lens is a little scratched. I don't think its enough to affect the photos, but still.

    Thanks

    The Seidio Convert has a wonderfully designed, retractable (quickly) lens protector.

    How are the ion4, the Magpul, Otterbox, and mophie with the lens cover? I think I've read the mophie affects pictures when the flash is used.

    I just found out that the most ideal case for protecting the iPhone in a slim form factor is the Clarifi from Griffin, However, It's only available for the 3g/3gs iPhone. :(

    Any cases similar to this are appreciated!

    When you say "lens cover" do you mean an actual protective barrier that COVERS the lens? Or do you just mean a case that protects AROUND the camera/flash area?

    I've been using an otterbox or the most part and they provide a good amount of protection. The lens doesn't have anything specifically covering it, but with the design. Other then directly nothing can get in.

    I would fear that if you did find a case that protected the lense, that the pictures wouldn't be very good (clouded).

    The iFrogz Bullfrogz case has a sliding piece that protects the lens when not in use.

    The case overall is just ok though. Nothing special.
