3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly disappointing product., 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BIRUGEAR 52mm Lens Accessory Bundle Kit for Nikon D5500 D5300 D5200 D5100 D5000 D3200 D3000 DSLR Camera with 52mm Lenses, Includes 52mm 3pc High Resolution Multi Coated Filter Kit + Flower Tulip Lens Hood + Lens Cap Holder + Lens Pen Cleaning kit (Electronics)
Bought this for a Nikon D5100 as I thought that for £16 it will be ok if not good quality. So here is a quick rundown:

Filters: These are good. Frames made of metal and filters made of glass. Boxed in a faux leather case. Very neat. The only problem is that one of them has a tiny defect, a bright dot. I have not found it on test photos yet, but it is there somewhere and I'm sure that in bright conditions it will finally reveal itself.

Lens Hood: If it was not the fact that I received one with a new lens, this one would have been ok. Mind you compared to the Nikon one this one is small.

These were positives, now to the negatives.

Lens Cleaning Pen kit: Pen itself is made of the cheapest kind of plastic, (even American Car Manufacturers stopped using it to make dashboards, but I digress), metallic parts of filters must have been coated with a thin layer of grease or something as after cleaning one the brush became useless. It now greases the glass forcing one to wipe it extensively, just to get rid of the stains, the other side of the pen, while it might be useful I don't have a use for it. I would rather wipe the lens with a cloth.

Microfiber cloth: This one is tiny, I got a bigger one for free from my optician.

Lens Cap holder: Would work for my 18-55 lens, but it's too short for the 55-200 lens. This makes it useless for people wanting to tie it with their camera strap.

Overall: fiters are good qaulity, hood is small but would have been ok if Idid not have a better one and the rest of items is poor. For the same money you can buy a good set of filters and a proper sized hood.
