It is easy to carry in the camera bag.
Betty Alfonso
The brush end works great and the carbon tip does an excellent job - once you get over the fear that you are going to scratch your lens to oblivion.

Often, something appearing trendy and cool can fool us. This is especially true when a respected company like Nikon puts its name on a product. After you review our test procedures and results, you can decide for yourself whether NLP-1 LensPen is worth the money (and the potential risk to lens surfaces), despite the majority of pundits that have praised this device.

If you've read this bio from another review, please skip it, no sense in boring you twice....For the record...My background after leaving the Military, as a photo wet lab instructor, with "several" hours of photo reconnaissance in the Far East, included a 20 year paid affiliation with a respected optical use and applications laboratory of a Fortune 50 Corporation. I am "retired" in Florida with a home grown photo testing lab and a reseller of Canon Gear.

Although, they've been around for a few years, I recently purchased 6 genuine Lens Pens and 50 "genuine" counterfeits to run some performance tests and comparisons. The "fakes" are covered in a separate review.

The ads for the genuine Lens Pen were always intriguing; a compact, 4 1/2" pen sized cleaning device, fits in your pocket, good for cleaning all lenses, filters, eyepieces, and according to their website, lasts long enough "to remove 500 fingerprints". Wow! All this from an "uncapped" retractable 1" by ½" synthetic bristle brush at one end, and a tiny screw capped ½" chamois pad, impregnated with carbon black, perched on a ½" flexible rubber platform at the other end.

My first skepticism started with the brush. Retractable yes, but fully protected, no. Why no protective cap to cover the brush tips? The tips of the bristles, the most critical part of the brush, were left exposed inside the tube.

This is one of the most essential lens-cleaning tools a photographer can have. There are several reasons why I choose these pens over any other type of lens cleaning:

- This is very portable
- The new design has a screw-on cap
- There is NO way to scratch your glass with the brush
- The carbon tip does an excellent job at cleaning

Traditional microfiber cloths are good, however if you don't brush off the minute foreign particles on the lens first even a light cleaning can leave micro-abrasions/cleaning marks! I trust the LensPen not just for my Canon L glass, but also for vintage manual focus lenses, some of which are rare and quite valuable.

I am very pleased with the new screw-on cap design - my last LensPen cap had several close calls hooked on the inside of my pocket, including on a hike that would have meant that I never got it back. The push-up design of the brush hasn't changed, seeing as it has always been excellent!

RECOMMENDATIONS:
If you have ever gotten anything on your lens that seems impossible to clean (pollen, little kid sticky fingerprints etc), I would highly suggest the following cleaning routine:

1) Using the brush, remove all particles from the front element as best you can.
2) Spray some Purosol All Natural Lens Cleaner on the included microfiber cloth, and wipe off until clean
3) Finally, gently use the carbon tip to finish up, gently making sure there are no streaks (unlikely with this spray)
4) Be amazed by the cleanliness of your lens!

I've been using the original LensPen to clean my Nikon lenses from day one. They work a charm for sure. The only thing about the older ones is that they don't seem to last very long. LensPen claims that the new design should extend the life of the carbon based filament inside the cap, so I guess I'll find out!

I love the new design because it takes the guessing out of whether or not one is getting the right amount of carbon on to the tip, since the cap is now a screw on one, and thus facilitates the entire process.

If there's one thing I'd like to see them improve upon, it would be having a tether for the cap. If you lose it, that's it, product done. Otherwise, Love it.

Doug

LensPen package says "Safe for cleaning all optical lenses, including multicoated surfaces".
LensPen produced a very large number of very fine scratches on brand new eyeglasses--with hard AR coated lenses--when LensPen was used according to package directions--perhaps 10 times.
I am extremely disappointed in this product--this product, in my opinion, is grossly defective. Since it scratches brand-new scratch-resistant eyeglass lenses, it will probably scratch other lenses as well, in my opinion.

Lenspen NLP-1 is ok. It does help clean your lens of small dust particles but with the brush portion had a cap piece or something. I have to keep mine is a zip lock bag to keep it dust free. You can not keep it in your shirt pocket as the brush end will attract you shirt pocket lint and when you use it your lens will get dirty.
