    I would think that how one would use a cleaning cloth for lenses would not necessitate a disseration. Apparently I'm wrong. So, pick up the cloth using the fingers of either hand, make sure that the things on the cloth designed to prevent the cloth of drifting away in a hurricane by making it more gripable are away from the lens (i.e. touching one's fingers) and move the cloth in a circular pattern over the lens until dust, finger prints and other detritus disappear and the lens is clean. What makes this cleaning cloth so worthy of exhaustive comment is that when used as described, it cleans. Yippee!! and thank you for your attention.

    I wanted to love this cloth, but I just think it is okay. I love the grips on the back, but it takes some getting used to and it is very small. I also had to use it longer than I expected to get the results I wanted (smudge marks off my lens).

        I have the same filter as a Cokin resin filter and the different is night and day. The Cokin has a huge color cast and the Tiffen is a sold piece of glass in a nice little case case. I wish I had bought this in the first place.

            It only has one usable side, I don't find the grip pattern useful compared to normal rags. It seemed to smear more than clean, even with lens cleaner applied.

                The grip-surface is a great feature. I actually use the cloth for my eyeglass lenses more than for my camera lenses. I will have to include a few more with my next order.

                    Grips on one side of the cloth make it very easy to clean camera lenses and IPAD screen. size of the cloth is just right for placing in my pocket and using as needed during shoots.

                            The cloth sheds and is not easy to use. I do not care for the rubberized backing.

                                  I like the soft-grip that is on the one side. Feels like really good quality. Great customer service from B&H!

                                          This cloth is great for cleaning lenses and camera accessories. The grip on the back is very comfortable and gives better stability when cleaning lenses.

                                                I kind of like this thing. I like the grips on one side. I would be cautious though, you can get some good traction with this and maybe dig in too hard. Other than that, it is a very functional cleaning cloth and I I don't have any lint issues with it.

                                                      I've got many microfiber cleaning cloths, but this is probably the softest and "finest" of them all.
                                                      Plus it has "grippy" dots on the back side which makes it easier to grip.

                                                      I like to carry one in my bag and one in my pocket so there is always one handy. This works well!

This is a good cloth for wiping down my lenses, monitors, or any other gentle cleaning during and after a location shoot. The easy grip side is a nice touch too.

The use of grip material on one side of the cloth is also a good design - while one might think that it makes the product 50% less useful, it actually improves usefulness by ensuring the side that makes contact with the lens remains free of body oils from one's hands.
