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"):

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.

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

    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.

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

    Seriously the best cloth I've ever used to clean my lenses. I saw the other positive reviews and thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad that I did, because it's a great product!

            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!

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

                    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.

                              Not all lens cleaning cloths are created equal. As many well know a porrly made cloth can do more harm then good. With Leica you get what you pay for.

                                              Does a fantastic job cleaning lenses or any delicate surfaces. It's made of a very fine micro fiber that seems to be able to clean things that no other cloth can clean. Occasionally leaves a few white specks from the cloth, but you can just easily blow that off. It comes packaged in a small white paper and says if it gets dirty just wash it and reuse it. My only complaint is that I wish it came in a better case or something more durable than paper. I would recommend purchasing a Rocket Air Blower as well to use with this.

                                              This thing is something out of this world. Never have I used a cleaning cloth that takes everything away and leaves no marks or smudges. Love the feel of this cloth and that it has NO dust or lint particales..

                                              It is like having a mini clean room while wiping your Lens glass. I purchased 3 of these. Loved them so much, I orderd 10 nmore of these.. I even clean my eyeglasses with these..Just like the other reviews on here that say there is nothing else like this out there, well they are right.. This is a great product. Yes it cost more $$, but you get what you pay for.. Highly recomended..

                                              The Leica cloth is significantly better quality than any microfiber cloth I've used. It captures all the oils and dust without leaving a trail (unlike some of the other comments).

                                              Wish it came with a plastic container though.

                                                      "I use this lens cleaning cloth for everything. My main uses for it are for my camera lenses and my visor on my hockey helmet, and it works great. After reading other reviews I decided to go ahead and shell out the extra $ dollars for a Leica Lens Cleaning Cloth, and I'm very glad I did. I feel it works much better than my other cloths and I don't have to use any cleaning chemicals to get a nice clean lens. So far I have been extremely pleased with my purchase and I would definitely recommend this product for any photographer."

                                                        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

                                                            This is a great cloth for keeping lenses clean. I've used it with cleaning solution and without and it works great either way. And should it get dirty, its easy to wash.
