Best press release ever. If this really came from Sigma, I may even buy a lens from them.

I've being looking for a left handed lense cleaner for some time. Will it work with a analogue lense on a digital body ?

If only all press releases were as entertaining :)

This is a genuine press release from Sigma UK - cross my heart. They must have have had a few spare hours to write it.

Now, if only this article could get Slashdotted...

This article is silly. You could get away with it on April Fool's Day, but otherwise it's not appropriate for a serious technology news site.

Very impressive to incorporate finally the remarkable low energy (LE)technology in a cleaning cloth. Have been waiting long for this!

It's nice to see that manufacturers have a sense of humor; however,
they also need to use this approach in a responsible manner, which
Sigma has not done. By facetiously suggesting their lens cloth could
be used as a tissue backup, Sigma may have unwittingly introduced
a potentially harmful situation by neglecting to include the disclaimer
that further use of the cloth for lens cleaning would be ill-advised.

I would have to agree with Jonathan, this is a technical website, and
an inappropriate place for humor.
