Anyone tried one of those Sensor Gel sticks on a 6D or a 5D3 yet??

Re: good move maybe

Well I see they are endorsed and sold by Copper Hill so that is a big boost in confidence.

Mixed reviews there.

I saw some good results but for me I don't get my sensor dirty enough for me to use it over wet clean.  Methanol has a very low evaporation residue anyhow and there is no proof that the gel is any better in that regard.  If I'm annoyed enough to wet clean once in a blue moon I want it 99% clean anyhow and I've been pretty good at it.  This one looks like it gets you to 95% clean quickly and you can use it more often.  But to be honest my 6D stays 95% clean as is without any intervention and I shoot only dusty non-sealed primes.
