These pens are top notch. I use them for about a dozen cameras in a professional environment. I bought this set for myself since I'm always on the go when I'm shooting as a hobby. The results are spotless, with no smears and its easy and fast on the lens. I was concerned with scratching the glass, but after using these on cameras a couple years, I haven't seen a scratch yet.

I love how easy it is to store and how you don't have to worry about it getting dirty, wrinkled or picking up some stray matter that might scratch your lens if you keep it in your pocket, unlike a cloth. It's all about convenience.

The cloth that comes with it is great for cleaning my LCD when needed. I'll pack my smaller pen in the case with my compact coolpix.

While all the other swag that came with the primary pen is cool, and what made it a great deal, I probably won't use the rather good cleaner case, anti-fog cloth or small pen a ton (at this point).

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

About Me Professional

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.
