    Normally i would bring a lenspen, Zeiss Lens wet wipe and facial blotters.
    Facial blotters are good for cleaning oily stains and fingerprints on lens.

    I've learnt through experience that I should also bring along some sort of sensor cleaning device, like the LensPen SensorKlear.

    In temperate countries, when the air is dry, things tend to get statically charged rather easily, and that includes cameras, making them a real dust magnet. It's frustrating when every shot you take, you can spot elephants on the ground, or UFOs in the sky of all your images.

    May not be that crucial if you only brought one lens, though...

    i went on a 7.5 week trip just recently and only brought a blower and lens cloth. i used the blower twice because - not because i needed to, but just because i brought it and hadn't used it.

    Lenspen is the best, all the way. I'll take that anyday over the old fashion lens tissues and fluids or blowers...

    You can buy them at $2.90 USD each on Hvstar.net, so I recommend you grab like 10x + 6 USD for shipping. It's a real bargian.

    Do any of you use the cleaning liquid to wet the lens tissue before wiping?

    Is there another thread on how best to clean your lens off dust and fingerprints?
