Whilst you're all eagerly awaiting the results of my humble, unscientific little experiment with two 50mm lenses, one with fungus and dust specks, the other OK, I was wondering why we clean our lenses at all?
Back to my little experiment. As I can't send individual prints to everyone so they can decide for themselves I'll have to get the negatives scanned. That way I can post the results so anyone interested can have a look on their monitors. I believe this now to be the most common way of viewing images?
Poundland have a good offer on microfibre cloths... you can buy them from their store for well... er £1 !
They say that they are:
Ideal for dusting, cleaning glass & mirror, furniture polishing and cleaning your kitchen & bathroom. Can be used with or without chemicals and cleaners. Cloth will not scratch. Wash and re-use 100's of times.
Another advert says they're great for cars, wood and kitchens amongst other things.
Whether they actually do slightly scratch your lenses I've no idea as I don't use them but even if they did it is unlikely to affect your images.....
