    What do you use for cleaning filters and lenses? There seem to be a few alternatives, I've seen blowers and brushes, pens and other stuff but have no idea what givers good results.

  4. I always take two microfibres. One is for gently flicking anything
    off that looks like it might scratch (and because it might have those
    'anythings' in it, it is never used to wipe the lens).. Then gently
    wipe it with the second.
    If there is a greasy finger/nose-print I add a gentle but loong 'huff'
    on the lens to fog it slightly before wiping.

    Both get washed frequently, in a wash cycle that does *not* include
    softener..
