    Most reputable camera shops will stock a variety of lens cloth. Just check with them but shouldn't cost you more than 12 to 15 dollars. Most are similar but I would advise that you rinse the cloth at least once before using it.

    I'm using Georgia-Pacific AccuWipe. It's a big box of disposable high-grade lens tissue.

    I somehow don't trust myself with lens cloths as they may gather rough particles if not stored properly. Better safe than sorry. Costs only $15 for 280 wipers. You might wanna check it out. Got mine at MSColor.

    Don't use cloth; use a LENSPEN

    I'll have to go with digitalpimp. Special tissues for lens are one of the best options. I once used these and it's really effective and quick. Now less because I mounted a UV filter so I just anyhow wipe with my shirt :O

    cloth is useful when your filter kana liquid (like rain), it can suck up the liquid.
