Top critical review
4 December 2016
I always use lens pens to clean my lenses. Usually use the Polaroid version, but decided to give this one a go, even though I'd used the old Lenspen version and wasn't terribly impressed.
If anything, I found this version worse than the old one. On one occasion, when I was cleaning my lens, the rubber / carbon end popped off, causing the hard plastic casing of the Lenspen to hit the front element of my lens. Maybe I was pressing a little hard, but this shouldn't have happened. Luckily the front element of my rather expensive 24-70 f2.8 wasn't damaged.
Beyond that, I just don't get good results from the Lenspen. When I use the Polaroid version, my lenses always come up sparkling clean, but not with this product. It doesn't seem to get greasy marks off well. Really disappointing.
