I have a couple different microfiber cloths to clean lenses, or I use cleaning solution and lens paper if things are bad. Aside from that, I've got a little hand pump air blower which was in a box of photographic stuff I inherited from my dad. It just provides a small blast of air through a nozzle. I also sometimes use a squeeze bulb blower thing which has a soft brush on the end.

Have never had the need to clean anything on my Z1 more thoroughly than that.

Gee, I don't really know. It's something I picked up a few years ago at a camera shop from a rack of accessories. It's a little red squeeze bottle which just says "cleaning solution" on it...

Rosco makes a very good solution for lens cleaning, and their lens paper is nice and large.
