This is a great lens cloth. It does a great job of actually cleaning instead of smearing.

I thought the size of the cloth could be a little bigger but after using it I found it is perfect. Too much bigger and it wouldn't fold so easily into my front pocket :)

Cheap enough to buy a bunch and keep a fresh batch in stock.

I tried to like this product but the lint and fabric fibers it leaves behind are terrible. I will admit it does a great job with removing smudges, etc but then I need to use something else to remove all the junk this left behind. Maybe I'll wash it and try again

      Comments about Leica Lens Cleaning Cloth (8 x 8"):

      Very usable size, quality is very good. The cloth picks everything up and does not leave much lint behind (of course all cloths leave some amount of lint). I love the white clothes so that I can tell when it gets dirty and needs washing.

          I use this cleaning cloth for my glasses. I can remove finger prints, dust, etc. quickly. It is much better than other cheap ones (for example, free clothes come with glasses). The size (and thickness) is just good. A little pricey.

            I use high quality clear protector filters on all my lenses. Living in the deep south I have to clean my filters quite often due to the high humidity. This cloth smeared and left fibers, having me to use the cheep micro fiber cloth I purchased in a kit from the local electronics store.

              White means clean, so it is easy to spot when a cloth should not be used. Super soft cloth is my go-to cloth for $ lenses.

                  In need of a good microfiber cleaning cloth, I bought this one on a whim. It's a great conversation starter, to say the least. It's a good cloth, performs its job well, and I have no complaints about it. Even the packaging was nice.

                      A very good lens cleaning cloth. I don't know if they come in a bigger size, but if they do I'll buy one or two more. Does the job very well.

                      Better than most lens cleaning cloths. As others have pointed out, a little on the pricey side. But you get what you pay for.

                      Durable, soft cloth that quickly cleans smudges and fingerprints. Since it's white it's easy to tell when it's getting dirty. It is a bit pricey so that is why I'm giving it four stars. I believe the red dot logo ramped the price up. It was the other reviews here that made me splurge on this lens cloth. It does what it's supposed to do better than some of the first microfiber cloths that I've had for years.

                        I have used microfiber lens cloths for years. Some bad and some good. Many leave a strange lint on the lens filter requireing a blower to reomve them.

                        The Lecia microfiber cloth does not leave this strange lint on the filter. The feel of this lens cleaning cloth is excellent. Not course as a few I have used.

                        It cleans the filter and leaves nothing behind. Love the larger size.

                        This Leica cloth came highly recommended and I am impressed. Well worth the money.

                                I bought two of these based on the reviews of others. They were right! Regardless of brand or manufacturer, this is the first cloth that didn't leave me with 10 minutes of brush work trying to get that last confounded piece of fabric off the lens.

                                A perfectly clean lens is a very elusive thing! My Nikkor lens will look perfect to my eye after cleaning. I then inspect it with a lighted magnifier I carry in my camera bag. Believe me, it's never perfect. There are always small pieces of lint (which can mostly be removed with a brush and blower) If I fog it lightly with my breath, streak marks will be visible with the magnifier. I have tried 2 of the best-seller microcloths from B&H. I decided to spend the extra cash and try the Leica. I won't say it's perfect, but it's getting real close! Less lint residual and less streaks. All I was hoping for-this may be the best you can do in the field without having a portable lens-cleaning clean room!

                                  While there may be cheaper versions of the microfiber lens cleaning cloth out there, the quality of the Leica version is likely unmatched. They do an excellent job of keeping the lens or filters free of image-ruining dirt or droplets. I purchased these before shooting some sunsets along the beach on a breezy day. A constant barrage of salt water sray on your expensive lenses and filters is always a challenge, but these Leica cloths come in handy and do an excellent job! The 8 x 8 size is perfect. Not too big, and not so small that you end up smudging up the lens with fingerprints while trying to clean it. I didn't have any problems with lint from the cloth, as mentioned in another review. However, I did wash these in cold water with a mild detergent, and then dried on the gentle cycle with no fabric softener, before use just as a precuation. Washing had no ill effect on the cloth, or its performance. These are now my "go to" cloth, for all my camera cleaning needs.
