Yes I suspect that is exactly what I did. I have now become a wet clean convert.
I've got an order in for a dozen FX swabs kit and half that for DX swabs. I am now a believer!
My local dealer charges $70 for a cleaning, so that provided enough motivation that I should become proficient. Plus like i say, in the above case, I was about to leave for a trip and simply had no time to get my camera down to my dealer and back.
