Anyone used the Delkin Sensor scope cleaning kit on their K5 yet?

Just got back from a 3week trip to El Paso, I have a few "pesky" spots on the sensor now. I was thinking of getting the whole Delkin kit for the K5 and the Kx, Anyone use this kit yet? Thoughts on it?

I have it and have used it very successfully. The most important item in this kit is the loupe though. If you were to get just that and a Pentax sensor cleaner on a stick (I can't recall the name or number of it), that would be perfect. The rest of the stuff in this kit works but that silly Pentax sticky cleaner does the job. The loupe is brilliant and is the other half of the combo.

Bottom line, this kit works just fine but is over kill IMHO.

Thanks, I keep hearing about the Pentax "lollipop" You can get this kit for a bout 75 dollars, on EBAY, The light alone costs about 50-65, I figured, adding the vac, to clean other things like the edges of filters might make this a worth while purchase.

I have the kit and I agree with blackcouldbrew. The vacuum brush is flimsy, the switch on mine broke after a few use.
