    If I just want a simple clean, Lenspen will do. If I need a thorough cleaning, I use Kodak lens cleaning paper and cleaning fluid. You can buy from CP. Not cheap though, but it will last you for ages!

    Microfiber cloth only. Also B+W MRC filter, so no cleaning problem.

    Before cleaning using lenspen/microfiber cloth, use an air blower to blow off any particulars from the filter so that they will not scratch it.

    I use blower with attached-brush lightly at the same time(to prevent any scratches coz by any fine particles on the surface, then, just use Lenspen will do the job(only lenspen=normal & mini versions, so far, maybe its B+W filters, coz many yrs-abt 9yrs ago was using Hoya but due to "aiya & aiyo" then changed all to B+W liao)
    Anything that can take pictures...happy already lor...(..but...Hasselblad_H5D-50 as my Workhorse)

    Because MRC coating of B+W filter is superb and smooth, so no problem cleaning. If you have Hoya filter, you know how difficult is to clean fingerprint on hoya filter. With B+W filter, its so easy... Just use microfiber cloth. Last time I use Hoya filter, but after I try B+W filter, I change all my filter to B+W filter.
