    I always remove them - they look horrible.

    Agreed completely. But the sticker residue is not much better!

    Very funny, this thread.

    I figure it's a good indicator of a camera's "privileged" lifestyle. I have a number of my dad's lenses with the sticker still attached.

    Goo Gone is a citrus de-greaser cut with a glycerine.

    Far better is a product called Citra Solv. This stuff dies wonders on old foam seals.

    What's there to pass on a Holga?

    "Sir, we checked and the lens has some diffraction issues, there's light leaks around the back, the focus is incorrect, and the shutter seems to be the same no matter which setting...."
    "Pass!"

    It's sort of like the video cameras (and new digicams) which spend their whole life with colorful stickers that say 10x zoom, stabilized,

    I hate leaving stickers on things and I detest seeing clear(ish) protective film left on things such as display windows. And don't get me started on people who buy a new car and leave the plastic covering on the seats.

    Someone at work has a friend who was boasting about the blue anodised aluminium logo on his new phone until he peeled off the blue film to reveal its true aluminium colour.

    What's the story with those stickers? Were they a global industry agreement?
