Cleaning The Lens

Ok, this may sound like a stupid question, but what is the best way to wipe off dust and remove fingerprints off the lens? I read that microfiber clothes works pretty well.

Most everyone uses the lens cleaning cloths now, with lens cleaner, instead of lens tissue. It's also a good idea to brush the dust off first with one of those soft lens brushes with blower bulb.

I'm not sure if you have them in the US of A, but i use a "LensPen". Theses are the greatest since sliced bread! Have a look LENSPEN is The superior Camera lens cleaning system for all fine optics, rifle scopes, camcorder and camera viewer screens, binoculars

i would highly recommend it

Cheers
