        These wipes will clean your lens, but I find that no matter how lightly I apply pressure to the surface to be cleaned I find lint remaining after I am through. When using this product it seems that I must use extra care when using a post-wipe follow up with a micro-fiber cloth and blower to be certain that all the lint has been removed.

                    These are pretty much the standard to use. Years back when I first started, i learned that these were used to clean the IMAX projector, a BEAST of a machine. I figured that was good enough my my lenses.

                    No cleaning solution, negligible lint creation. They are cheap and plentiful, so use one in a circular swipe and get another. Takes me 4-10 wipes on average per element being cleaned on EOS DSLR lenses.

                    Pack a baggie of these with you on location, video or photo. A Must Have.

                      It's a disposable lens cloth and it works, what more can you say. I use it with ROR solution and it works well. I also use the Zeiss pre-moistened wipes. Between these two solutions I can have all my optics clean. Canon Lenses, Zeiss spotting scope, Zeiss Binoculars, Celestron SCT telescope and eye pieces.

                      (1) Be aware that they are DRY wipes!
                      One must first remove dust particles with brush, then use some moist wipes first before using this.
                      (2) They are NOT packed individually - rather interleaved like facial tissues - only difference is, unlike facial tissue (which should NEVER be used on lenses), these leave no residue.
                      (3) Once opened, they should be stored in a bag or enclosed container, or dust will find its way inside!

                                    These are the gold standard for lens cleaning. Far, far better for lenses then using a microfiber, and better then lens tissues that come in books. The ones in books can often hold dust between the sheets.

                                    If you work with quality equipment this is what you should be using.

                                      I have used so many different lens cloths over the years. I tried these and love them. They are always in my camera bag now. They also work great on glasses & sunglasses. They also work very well with ROR and won't leave any residue behind. I do spray the wipe lightly and then apply it to my filter or lens.

                                            They are 'firm tissues' rather than fibrous paper.

                                            4 stars because they leave fibres behind. Its no drama with a blower, its just stopping them getting 5 stars

                                                  I find Kimwipes work well for me. I use them for cleaning camera lenses, microscope objectives, and iPhone and iPad screens. I use the with a little ROR for really dirty stuff, or a good quality lens cleaner when ROR isn't needed.
                                                  It's a good idea to keep the box in a ziplock bag to keep it from picking up dust.

                                                        Use these with a small spray of ROR, and everything comes off except a little lint. The lint is easily removed with a blower bulb.

                                                          I was recommened this product by a few friends and after having used microfiber vs disposable tissues + lens cleaner (Pancro) this product is a definite winner:

                                                          I use this product to clean my personal zoom lens and lenses when I'm on set. It's perfect and doesn't scratch the glass if used correctly.

                                                          Disposable so you don't have to worry about cleaning a cloth.

                                                          The only cons of this is that there's always a wipe sticking out of the box so that one will get dusty.

                                                            Quick and easy to use. No need to worry about dirt or buildup because these are disposable.

                                                            Good for wiping lens, viewfinder, LCD screen.

                                                              Works great to clean lenses and filters other than it leaves lint which is difficult to remove, especially with multicoated optics. Followup with a warm moist breath of air, and a final polishing with a microfiber cloth seems to do the trick. Overall, Pec*Pad seems more effective. Also came in a tussue-style dispensing box, which is not great for travel, or for keeping that next tissue all that clean.

The idea of reusing the same lens cloth is insane. I just wish b and h sold the pancro lens cleaner that should be used with the kim wipes, hopefully soon.
