Thanks to those of you who have made on-topic contributions, guess this product is too new to expect many too have tried them. Decided to get some anyway, will come back to this thread when I can give an opinion to their usefulness.

What's wrong with Mr Sheen and a duster then?

Won't that scratch the focussing screen?

O.K.
Received my DSLRClean sensor cleaning sticks this morning, had a go at the 10D as it had the dirtiest sensor. I think they are great, judge for yourself by taking a LOOK HERE at the before and after shots.

Result indeed!
Thanks for the post Adrian.
I'm using an E-300 so hopefully won't need to use one too often but I can't imagine the ultrasonic cleaner is infallible so know that one day even us Oly users will get a dirty sensor.!

OK finally got round to trying them. My sensor was quite dirty (only just noticed it though as I rairly shoot above f8). I had tree goes (with the same stick one either side and a quick one back with the first side as one spot remained). Very impressed. There is one very small spot left that I could probably get off with another stick but it is barely visable so I will live with it for a month or two and then give it another clean before the next major outing.

Very easy to do (but feels very sticky doing it!!). I also ran the stick over the focus screen and it improved that a bit (as I find stuff on the focus screen is more of a pain though of course doesn't affect pictures.

I would recomend them

cheers
