    Yes, the 'arctic butterfly' is for the sensor or to be more specific, AA filter, cleaner. It's very safe but feel it's on the premium ($) side. It does not take care of very stubborn stains though (which requires the 'wet' method). For stubborn stuff, I go direct to NSC.

    Yeah agree abt that part on the stiffer rubber in the swiss blower. But after some time of use, it has become more 'seasoned', though still a bit stiff.

    Actually why will the one with the metal tip be better? Wouldn't a metal tip be more capable to scratch the lens?

    Why will the metal tip scratch the lens when the tip is to be inches away from the lens?

    Oh, that is not just for "packaging" ah? It's meant to be left in place during usage?

    The Light Blue one is the one to get. That's right, just one. 15 years still blowing
    Only things are the color is a bit 'warmer' than when brand new and it's mellowed to a nice soft press when squeezing. Not that I'm complaining, I like mine soft to squeeze...
