I’m wondering what the best way is to clean my XL2 lenses. I thought I had a cleaning kit, but apparently not.! I have some tiny spots that show up occasionally.
I use a lens pen unless my lens is really dirty. You should be able to buy one at a local camera shop (photo or video). Maybe they’d have them in best buy.
After you clean your lens, invest in a UV filter. It just threads onto the front and basically protects the main lens from everything.
I do have a lens pen but whatever is on my lens won’t budge with the brush. I’ve just heard horror stories about using the wrong fluid or cloth.
yea, you should try to find the right fluid and cloth. it’s not expensive and you may end up regretting it if you don’t buy it.
