This is must buy for photographers on the go. It comes with a great little pouch that fits anywhere in a camera bag and it goes with me everywhere with my camera and lenses. The large pen is great for my larger diameter lenses (Nikon 70-200mm and 17-35) and I sometimes bring my small binoculars which I clean the glass with the small pen. Antifog cloth works great on my UV protective filters but not so great on my polarizer. In certain angles I can see the residue deposited on the polarizer due to the film produced by the antifog cloth. The residue eventually disappears but it was a slight concern when I used the antifog cloth the first time.

2 stars is a bit generous but seems fair because the pens are fine. The surprising part is that the case that holds the equipment is obviously a factory defect. There is no way this would get past quality control, so I believe that the reason you get a "free bag" with this offer is that they are getting rid of a bunch of defects. Nikon/BHPhoto, do not give me "free stuff" if it is defective. The bag is all crooked, the zippers are messed up, and so forth, mis-stitchings all over.

    Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

    I love these lens pens. I'm on my 5th only because I stuff them in pockets and forget their there and misplace them easily.

    Brush is super nice to remove debris and dust before using the cleaning side. The cleaning side is screw on and not the pop on that the LensPen brand uses which tends to pop off under some conditions.

    Cleaning is better than microfiber cloths and cleans up streaks, smears and finger prints real well. I make sure that all dust and debris is removed so I don't push it across my lens with the cleaning tip.

    The kit really comes with usable stuff. The case is a little big for what it's storing so I'll probably not use it all.

    Everyone should have this lens pen!

    By Rod K

    Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

    No matter the smudges on my lens or filter, the lens pen works great to remove them! Just swipe away the larger dust particles with the brush end then use the carbon end to clean.

    Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

    Probably the best lens cleaning kit on the market. It includes all that is necessary to maintain clean, lint and oil free lenses. It is all enclosed in a very durable travel case.

    A great solution for daily care of all of your lenses. Highly recommended for all levels of photographers.

                  Everything worked pretty well but I wish it came with more of an insturction on how to use the pen. When I first got it and open the pen, I touched the pen and black powder was left on my finger. I was puzzeld to figure out what this was and if it was normal. Turns out it's normal but they didn't have instructions to how to use it or what it is. Need to improve that aspect of it.

                        I wish I had bought this a long time ago. I am finally able to get dirt particles off my lens that I was not able to remove with any other method. It also is able to clean hard to reach areas of the lens such as the glass on the mount side of the Canon EF 200mm L lens which I had not been able to clean before.

                            Now my second set and this time the caps screw on instead of falling off in my camera bag! The pens are great for cleaning the edges of lens and the eye piece/lens. One just needs to remember to remove the anti-fog coating (included in the kit) with a lens cleaner (not included in the kit) before using the pens. They don't last forever, so plan on getting another set when they start to smudge your lens/filters, etc.

                            Basic cleaning to clean dust or smudges out on your shoot. Very easy to carry and use. My lenses get dust on them quickly living in the southwest, so this works well to swipe them clean. They obviously won't get the lenses as clear as a wet wipe system.
                            The mini pen is a little to small except maybe for a mirrorless or point and shoot

                            This is a great lens cleaning kit, which comes in a zippered pouch, which works great in a camera bag. It keeps everything organized and in one place, so when you need it, you can find every thing. It even says Nikon on it. With all the choices for cleaning products, this kit comes with it all. Easy to purchase, easy to use. The case has a bit of extra room, in case you have other things you'd like to store and organize. Very happy with this choice.

                                    I love these lens pen. It's so easy to use, just brush off the dust, and clean the lens with the disk. No smear.
