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.

Not really a "Pro Kit"

By Nicole

from Chicago, IL

About Me Professional

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

I actually never review anything but there was minimal description of this item & no reviews so I felt it may help anyone considering it.
I've loved all my purchases from B&H so far, so I'm bummed that my 1st review will be negative, but I am disappointed with this "pro kit". I had a Nikon lens pen that I lost and was looking to replace. I loved that pen and paid about half one pen as this whole kit was priced, so it seemed like a great deal. There aren't pictures of it so I wasn't super clear what was included. Here's what you get: a smaller lens pen brush than if you buy it on its own & a tiny one- not sure what it's point is; a defog lens cloth- sounds great, haven't tried it yet; and a lens cloth that says it is not recommended for use on quality lenses- WHAT???!! I believe my Nikon lenses are quality glass & would have hoped Nikon's own lens cloth could be used on them...I'm also not sure what is low enough quality that I'm comfortable using this cloth on, so basically it's useless.
So I now feel that I pretty much paid double for the one lens pen I was looking to replace. Oh yes, it also comes in a dandy carrying case! Hope this review helps. I do love the Nikon lens pen, though, and would recommend it on its own.

Clean Delicate Lenses

Pros

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Fog Cloth
  • Residue From Pen

Best Uses

  • Traveling

Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

Wanted a safe and effective method of camera lens cleaning while in a dusty environment and potential mist droplets on lens. The included fog cloth not recommended for lenses and the cleaning tip of the pen produces a dark powder that makes me nervous about using. The brush will be the most beneficial. There is little difference in size between the two pens.

      Comments about Nikon Lens Pen Pro Kit:

      I received this kit a couple weeks ago and put it to work right away cleaning camera and lens.
      The pouch is well made. It is double zippered so it can open completely and lie flat or just partially open depending on what one wants. It has a little metal D ring on the back which adds to possibilities of attaching to something else like camera bag, etc. The pouch also has a sleeve sewn on the back for a camera or bag strap to fit through. No complaints about this set up. The lens cloth is good optical quality and generous size and no residual fuzzies. It easily cleans things up to sparkly. There are two sizes of lens pens. Both have quality retractable brushes for dust and the carbon black disc for fine cleaning after brushing. The lens pens are very good and I had no problem using them. There is also a small anti fog cloth. There are instruction sheets for lens pens, anti-fog cloth and lens cloth. There is enough room in the kit to put a few moist lens wipes and even the small bottle of cleaner or a blower if one wanted. I just tucked in some moist cloths. This is a very nice all purpose kit to have available that one can adjust to one's personal likes. It easily fits in a glove box, under seat, console, etc. I myself don't have it dangling on my camera strap because I don't like excess stuff but I do have it in the truck when I go out shooting.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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.
