Minox 35 lens cleaning

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

I recently picked up a Minox GT. On reading the manual under "Camera Care", I noticed that it says not to use cleaning solutions (ie: lens fluid)on the lens. Why? I have always used lens tissue and lens fluid on all my 35mm lenses, especially to remove fingerprints, etc.

Response to Minox GT lens cleaning

Tim, I don't use lens fluid to clean my lenses anymore, because lens fluid may seep into the interior of lens.

Instead, now I use LENSPEN to clean all my camera lenses, including Minox 35mm lenses.

At one end of LENSPEN is a brush to brush off debris or dust on lens, then use a soft leather pad with lens cleaning compound one the other end.

LENSPEN is very effective in removing smudges on lens.
