    Default dirty lenses

    I find my lenses to have fingermarks and as well as the pinhole which i use to take pictures.
    Should i send for cleaning or is there commercial products which are able to do a clean job?

    some lens cleaning fluid and a lint free micro fiber cloth should do the trick. juz be very economical in the number of wipes you apply and try not to wipe when cloth is dry

    Never wiping the glass with dry cloth is good advice.
    You can try a lens pen as well.

    Dry cabi? Not neccessary if you take it out to shoot every weekend or so.

    A Lenspen is sold around $12 at Cathay Photo or The Camera Workshop. One's at Peninsula Plaza, the other's across the road.
