Zeiss "Lens Cloths" are NOT for camera lenses. I had no idea...

I have been using them for several years and never streaks.

The box also says Camera lenses along with the list of other things.

Zeiss comes through!

Today, I got two calls from a very, very nice person in the customer service department. The summary of our conversations is basically this:

1. Zeiss is sending me lens wipes that are appropriate for camera lenses. I can't wait to try them out! :)

2. Zeiss is now aware of the strange disconnect between the package design, product description, and the intended use of the "Zeiss Lens Cloths". Presumably, Zeiss will endeavor to fix this bizzare and confusing situation.

3. It is still not clear to me who is responsible for the confusion, Zeiss or Nice-Pak Products of NY, the manufacturer of the Zeiss Lens Cloths. I did not press my contact for an explanation, as I did not want to put her into an uncomfortable position.

I promised to email my contact at Zeiss a link to this thread in case she or someone else at Zeiss would like to add something to our discussion of their product.

Thanks in advance to the Carl Zeiss Company for what I'm sure will be great customer service and follow up! :cool:

Wow, that's pretty cool! Way to take some initiative and hopefully it leads to things getting straightened out!

We sell those wear I work but I have never used them. When I called someone at another store and asked him about them, he said they were really bad and left streaks all over. He had to go back with something else to clean it again. :(

I don't remember the package exactly but I tried some pre-moistened wipe product from Zeiss on my eyeglasses. Used it twice and threw the rest in the trash. Left a terrible filmy residue. Thank God for Bausch & Lomb!

I would have thought that the pre-moistened Zeiss wipes use the same cleaning fluid that comes in the Zeiss spray bottle. Is that not the case? Because everyone says the spray bottle fluid works great.

I've used them, but you have to let them dry out a little first to prevent the streaks.

I've been using these cloths on my multi-coat filters for years, without (to my knowledge anyway) any problems. I always use a blower on them first, and yes, they do streak (as they are very "wet"), but if you wipe, turn over the cloth, and wipe until it is dry, then use the blower again, it doesn't leave any streaks.

I use them on my eyeglasses most of the time. Love them.

I also use on my computer LCDs. Typically, I take out the moist cloth, unfold it, and wave it around for a few seconds to dry it out a little bit. Then I use it on eyeglasses, computer displays, or lens filters without issue (with a blower first).
