Re: Oh great I just spent $150 on E2 kit!

I have written this a couple other times, but its worth saying again. The sensor loupe with 7x magnification is the most valuable tool you can have. I really thought this thing was going to be a joke. I didn't know how wrong I was. I used to wipe the sensor, run outside, take a picture of the sky at F/22, look at the photo and repeat. What a joke. With this loupe, you can see stuff on the sensor and in the chamber you would NEVER see otherwise. I haven't gone outside and done the old routine since. Its because of this, I can so clearly see the difference in the sensor swabs vs the ones from Visible dust. And when I dont want to wet clean, I use Dust-Aid Platinum, find the dust with the loupe and in one or two quick taps, its gone.
