Lens cleaner problems

Hi all,

I have been using Nikon lens cleaner and I am noticing that it is smearing up my lenses. Anybody else have this problem? How do you clean your lenses and filters?

Peter,

I used to have that same problem until I started using Purosol Optical Molecular Lens Cleaner

I purchased the Purosol Optical 4oz Cleaning Kit with a Small Microfiber Cloth

Good luck,
Jim

Re: Lens cleaner problems

Go find yourself some ROR lens cleaner - there seriously is nothing else as good.

Hi Peter!

Usually don't face scenarios with rain, high humidity, or marine that can stain the exposed optical elements, so most of times is enough for me a common rubber blower.

Just when accidental drops or fingers comes, wipe my lenses or filters with an optical paper cleaner with a drop of lens cleaner (old Kodak or Zeiss).

Read out there something about that, if you daily whipes with paper/fabric and cleaner, you can also wipe the coating.
