Thread: lens pen

  1. #1

    Default lens pen

    hi all,
    i need a little help over here.

    i just bought a lens pen recently from cathay photo.
    the sales man told me that it can last me for around 3-4 mths.
    juz wanna confirm how long can a lens pen really last me,
    and also how do i know that i need to change one.
    Thanks.

    Cheers.

    sorry for my ignorance, but what does a lens pen do?

    my best guess is that it cleans the lens?

    Hey mate,

    It's S$10 each here. Yeah, I believe things are quite pricey in Euroland.

    yes... for protection. So that if got debris hit the lens, it will hit the filter instead. If got finger hand smudges, also smudge the filter first
