    What abt you?
    Hmm...where to buy the eclipse cleaning fluid ar? CP or other shops got sell?

    I did it once before...but did not use any fluid...just use lens tissue wiped off the spots caused by rain, moisture, dirt etc. ...wonder if the front got any coating anot...hope it won't get damaged. Anyway I only did it once or twice so far. The front element seems quite tough, dun think so easily scratched.

    CP has eclipse & pec pads. The front coating is tough, but I won't want to take any chances. Not sure abt the Canon's but nikon's front element is a simple flat glass which "shouldn't" cost too much to replace .

    Canon one is the same lar. Anyways, I use lens tissue and cleaned carefully, but it really does seem tough and scratch-proof. I just got irritated when I saw so much gunk on the front element, so decided wat the heck, take some lens tissue and cleaned it off. Maybe I will get the eclipse and pec pads from CP soon.

    Should be - "Right hand catch hold of her, left hand catch hold of 600mm".
    Or, 2 hands catch hold of her and stick out foot to let 600mm land on toes.

    Wow,

    You can imagne lah... If I do that , you guys sure rush to take photo liao

    If I catch the lens, she will say I don't like her
    If I one hand catch one, she will say I don't like her enough
    If I catch only her, she will say I stupid , drop such an exp lens

    Hard to decide loh ...
