Re: using an alcohol-based lens cleaner.

The writer states "When cleaning the lens, use an alcohol based cleaner, like a typical lens cleaning solution you can purchase at your local camera store, and apply directly onto a clean lens cloth, not directly onto the lens."


Everything I have ever read about lens cleaning warns against ever using alcohol or any strong solvent to clean a camera lens.  Alcohol can damage lens coatings, loosen lens cement and, with plastic lenses, potentially damage the lens itself.
