better safe than sorry??
why would u WANT to use anything other than water to clean it?
paint is water-soluble. unless you trip into a puddle of tar, you should be able to wash most anything off your lense with water.
it's cheaper than buying some B.S. cleaner.
if something other than water has ANY CHANCE of damaging my lense, then why should i take the chance when water does the THE EXACT SAME THING, if not better?
anything you hear online will just be anyone's opinion, no matter how educated or informed.
To me, IT'S NOT WORTH THE GAMBLE!!
