    Default What type of cleaning solution is recommended for lenses and filters?

    There're times when the filters get quite dirty and using a lint-free cloth doesn't seem to remove all the markings despite repeated ckeaning. Would the Eclipse Optic Cleaning System from Cathay Photo be better than those that come bundled with a blower and some lens paper? Are there any other cleaning solution to recommend?

    I use vinegar or Windex No Drip spray or Anti-static screen cleaner, for all my Leica and Nikon lenses. If I am overseas and no cleaner,I use whisky or brandy,can drink and clean also.For years already, no problem whatsoever..no scratches and my photos are crystal clear & sharp

    *me scratch head* whisky/brandy - thats a new one to me. I guess can always blame blurry/shake photos on the alcohol *hic*
