Good Enough with some things to consider.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon 8072 Microfiber Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
I am a working photographer with 5 years experience.
What can I say. It is a cloth for your lenses, nothing super special about it. It had a lot of lint/dust on it from the factory but a couple shakes and it works as promised. It has a little clip for connecting to you camera strap, and I see other pro photographers use it that way, just like the similar clip-on memory pouches, so it is there when you need it.VERY HANDY, but the little clip is "seriously" lame plastic and flimsy, if you clip it to your strap or camera then you will likely lose it in no time if you are anything like me.
Also the bottom is still open when you fold the cloth back into the pouch so there is potential to get dirt or dust inside the pouch if you are not careful, so shake it off real good before you use it or you could scratch your lens filter. I will not use this to clean the lens glass, this cloth is more for field use. I just use this cloth for smudges on my UV filter/Lens Protector usually cause by my finger slips. Clean your lens in a dust free environment. I will use a large more sanitary cloth for the actual lens glass. If you got your lenses as part of a DSLR instore promotion kit and your just shoot occasionally, like family stuff and trips then this is really all you need to clean your lens glass and filters. Just keep it clean and put away till you need it. If you have a lot of expenses lenses then you don't need my advice.
I have been using it every other day or so though keeping it in my camera bag till I happen across a sturdier clip from a piece of camping equipment or something. If you are considering this product then also consider the Nikon Lens Pen and the Giottos Large Rocket Blaster. Together all 3 of these products have you covered, all are a good value, they are really dependable, I use them all the time and no major complaints. Now go shoot.... well knock the dust off your sensor and clean your lens first.
