Thread: lenspen can still be used after cleaning old lens?

  1. #1

    Default lenspen can still be used after cleaning old lens?

    Took out an old lens from the dry box. Looked okay so i used the lenspen to clean off some dust specs and fingerprint marks.
    But later realised might be fungus.

    Can the lenspen still be used??

    try putting ur lenspens under the sun for a few hours, it might kill the fungus.. but then again, u might not want to risk it on an expensive lens

    i think fungus spores are everywhere, as long as you keep the lens in dry cabinet/dry box is ok already. it doesn't matter. even if you try to keep the lens from source of fungus but the enviroment is humid, it s useless.

    It will only kill the developed fungus, but the spores will remain and start growing once the conditions are good (humid, dark, organic material around).

    Stop worrying, start shooting. Equipment is meant for usage, not for storing. And it's stronger than you think.
