Hello people, I was wondering how to I clean the exterior of my lens (casing all those) and especially the Image Stabilization logo that is clogged with dust. Do I just use a normal damp towel to wipe it?

And do I do the same to my camera body?

Thanks! :)

There is this little booklet that came with your camera. I'm sure there's something mentioned there.

I clean my equipment after every use and i just use a damp cloth to clean all exteriors. For those u mentioned, u can try wiping it first then use a stronger blower to blow out the dusts.

I see..but I do not have a blower =/

What kind of blower do you recommend? Those rocket blower, the ones with a brush or the ones with a thin needle-like metal nozzle?

easier to use a brush to get rid of dirt. it's safe to use a camera brush for ur lens exterior.. although u might want to use the better quality ones for ur lens itself.

use a slightly damp cloth is good enough.. but remember to wipe dry with a dry cloth before returning it to ur dry cabinet.

i admit i haven't cleaned my lens in ages..haha. but exterior seems fine leh

You use a damp cloth to wipe the external part. Then use a dry cloth :) That should do the trick. DON'T EVER use soap :p

This is normal, even though i clean my lenses and DSLR after every use. Sometimes might be due to the rubber degradation.

Just go get one cos it's essential. Avoid those with brushes and i recommend the A*F Swiss one and Giottos Rocket.
