Hi CSers,

I just got myself a LensPen today and before I start using it on my lenses (front and rear) I was wondering if anyone might warn me otherwise or give me some tips (other than the instructions) on using it better?

Thanks! ;)

Use only when necessary. Your camera and lenses don't need any 'daily scrub'.

give the pen a little quarter/half twist while the cap is still attached before using...... the inside tip of the cap is charged with the cleaning agent

only for the front and rear glass elements of the lens

blow away dust and use a torchlight to check for particles that might still be on the lens, sweep them away with the built-in brush. use the round disc in light circular motion, and remember to recharge when necessary.

The lenspen is good.
What I find disturbing in the video is that the demonstrator keeps using her finger to touch the carbon tip, or attempt to point/touch the edge of the carbon tip.
This is not recommended as this would really 'oil'-up the tip.
