    i can verify that fingerprint claim..
    i tried Tokina (surprisingly easier to clean than Hoya, even though they are supposed to come from the same manufacturer), Hoya, Nikon NC, B+W MRC.. no doubt about B+W being easier to clean.

    I use one of those 3M non-scratch wipes and a conventional cleaning fluid.

    Actually using those lens cleaning liquids also not recommended cos will leave a layer of residue.

    From this forum I learn OP also sell B+W filter. but their B+W filter is mean for China market. Not much cheaper than non-China market, but construction of metal is not as good as for non-China market. IIRC, it is made from aluminum instead of brass. I suggest you avoid OP version.

    Hi,
    I blow the dust off with a blower and then pour some clean water at room temperature on filter and wipe it off with a soft tissue that I got with a spectacle case.

    tap water : if it doesnt have any impurities that might scratch, it may be ok.
    never use ethanol or any other stuff
