Thread: How to clean off white marks on Lens focusing and zooming grips?

    Default How to clean off white marks on Lens focusing and zooming grips?

    I've got a lens with some white residue on the focusing as well as the zooming rings. I remember reading somewhere that this are salt particles from our sweaty palms.

    Anyone knows what's a safe and effective way of cleaning them off?

    Thanks in advance.

    Those are similar to those seen on your watch strap.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    I just use a piece of damp cloth and scrub. Should be pretty safe as no chemicals involved, but make sure your cloth is not too wet.

    u can slowly pull out the rubber rings and dump into water to wash

    no need to worry that moisture go into the lens

    that sounds scary! would it warp the rings and after that, would the fit still be tight when you put the rings back?

    It depends if you do it once in a while or once a day.
