A slight word of caution re the Lenspen type cleaners...
yes they are very good and do a good job but there is one thing to be
careful about. I was using one on my Leitz bins when the soft tip actually
came away and I ended up cleaning my bins with the rubber underneath the
soft tip. This has happened to several other people I know so be careful. I
should point out that the make I was using is called a Hammapen and not
Lenspen, but the theory is the same!
A recommendation for a piece of equipment which is good quality, functional,
convenient and very appropriate for our needs (and in which I have no
business or other interest whatsoever - it was brought to my attention by a
LENSPEN is a pen-like, combined lens brush and lens cleaner about the size
of an extra-chunky ball-point pen. It is designed specifically for optical
equipment and uses a self-applying cleaning compound on the soft cleaning
tip. It is made in China, distributed by a Canadian company, is available
from photographic shops and costs around $20.
Have a look at one someday - you may like what you see.
