Leaked press shots today reveal high-quality images of Sony's upcoming lens attachments accessory that will be iPhone and Android compatible.

Lens-camera: What you see on these images are the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lenses. Actually these are not normal lenses! They have built-in sensor, Bionz processor, Wifi/NFC wireless connection and SD card slot. These lenses have no LCD screen and no usual camera controls. You will be able to control them through your smart phone or tablet (via WiFi or NFC). The lenses can be magnetically attached on your smartphone and it works on both, Android and iOS devices. That is nothing like we have seen before. For the first time you can shoot top quality images with your smartphone. Forget these iPhone or Android lens kits!

The report claims that Sony will be launching two Carl Zeiss lenses soon -- one with a 20.2 megapixel camera and another one with an 18 megapixel camera with a long zoom lens. The accessories will have Wi-FI and NFC connections to connect to smartphones as well as an SD card slot.

No word on any release date or pricing details...

That's great. Now you can add the lens only when you need it. Still smaller than a professional camera with professional quality.
