>I asked from local camera and optics repair shop, >how to clean a lens. There I was told the way they >they do it at the shop. They use three ingredients: > - highly refined petroleum spirit, > - wads of cotton and > - pressurizer air (from aerosol can). I was lead to believe (today in fact) by an excellent repairer, that the inside elements of leitz lens' (in this case an old M-series Summarit) had a liquidish type coating that is smudged or removed ON CONTACT... So I suppose the moral of the story is not to take a Leica lens apart! Cheers Michael Moffatt.
