That is WAYYYYY to expensive! No way I'm buying that. I'd stick to the Lumia 1020.

Perfect android. ........wow someone is overdosing on fanboyism

Whats funny is people complain the 808 was too bulky to carry yet because this as you say works for android devices suddenly you have no issues with size and weight and carrying both a phone and this everyday.

You have no credibility and all fanboys will now have to remain silent when they try to slate the 1020 or any wp device. All there excuses are baseless and bs

Nice search chaos ! 808 is still the king for me in photos and movies (Just it!). But WP is the worst thing ! And... cheaper. But 1020 costs a lot and ... has WP. Keeping my 808 with my S3 via NFC and now ... S3 with Sony. Lighter !

I think it's much easier to just pull out a 1020 of your pocket to take a snap (just think of a sudden shot), rather than taking out a phone from the pocket, then sticking an external lens and taking a snap.

Yup, but once the lens is attach, your simple/midrange phone can turn into a 1020 killer!! This thing is meant for a lot of user who want take great shots despite having not good camera phone.

Plus we have money to purchase this expensive accessories

One thing's for sure. Nokia has got its competitors worried. First the S4 zoom and now this.
