I was referring to the suggestion of using a LED torch expecting a flurry of panic posts because there was a speck of dust in a lens. Of course, if you send another makers Luxury zoom off to be cleaned it can come back sharper because it was reassembled more accurately than it left the factory.
It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
