    When you are outdoors, where do you change lens, in the open or get into you car...
    Is it safe?:er:
    At what frequency do you need to clean the filter?

    No need for car. Change lens wherever convenient, preferably out of the wind & rain.

    "Is what safe?" :lol: sorry, great movie.

    Yes, it's safe. I changed lenses inside and outside on film SLRs and rangefinders, now I do it on digital ones too... just do it away from strong wind and water (and, I guess, a sandstorm), try not to leave the lens off for very long, and nothing harmful should get in there.


    Whenever it gets dirty ;) occasionally knocking the dust off with air from a bulb blower should keep it clean for quite a while.

    A lot of people around here say that the dust reduction or whatever it is called isn't that effective. However, some is better than none.

    I try and change my lenses as quickly as possible and out of dust, wind, or rain.
