The link above (my previous reply) also provides guide on the website.

I have bought the housing myself as they didn't have just the lens in stock, but have yet to fit it as I will only do the work when I come to sell the phone because it is only cosmetic scratch I have on mine and doesn't effect the view of video/pictures taken.

No, you can't use the camera lens of ZL or SP, they are a little bigger and thicker.

As for how to replace the camera lens, it's easy. You only need tweezers or some sharp thing like tweezers. Use the tweezers to pry the camera lens ring with a little effort because there is adhesive sticker under it, and then you can remove the camera lens with the ring together easily. At that time, you can push then camera lens and remove it finally.

Hello,

That's a later reply, but probably it will be usefull.

I couldn't find a replacement part in market, so tried an abrasive polishing and it helps for me.

One can find disassemble instructions in net to detach a plastic cover of camera and then polish it.

You can compare photos made with/without a cover any time.

Regards
