Hi,

What kind of cleaning kits do you use for your lenses? Do I have to buy like a 'proper' cleaning set or just use the free ones that come with the camera? Any opinions?

Thanks.

what are freebies? At the least, must have a good cleaning cloth, blower and lens pen.

The freebies are useful in an emergency, but otherwise, I prefer to trust reliable brand products like ZEISS cleaning cloths and solution for expensive lenses/filters. Seriously, it's only a few dollars more for so much quality, and the peace of mind you get is priceless. :cool:

Get a lint free cloth or a microfibre cloth or those that clean spectacles will do the job & get a good blower. Always maintain your gears well & you don't have to tough stains to clean ;)

oh, could you tell me where can I get those?

Also, what about shooting with filters on? I only need to clean the filter right?

Microfibrecloth you can get it from computer shops or camera shops. For the spectacle cleaning cloth, walk into your regular specs shop & ask them to spare you 1 or 2 pcs, should be free. As for the blower look in here or any camera shops. But make sure you get the good one.
Some shoot with filter on & some don't. Its up to you. For me, I shoot with filter on ;)

So do you only clean the filter? What about the actual lens? And do you clean your lens cap as well?

Lens cleaning kit increases the life of a camera because lens is the main part of camera and it needs proper maintenance.

Whenever I clean the filters, I'll take it off & clean both sides & I'll use the blower to lightly blow off the surface of both front & back of the lens. You'll be surprise that sometimes you'll find tiny specks of dust on the front of your lens even with the filter on. Just before I put back the lens cap, I'll again use the blower to blow hard on the lens cap.
That's me, I don't know about you ;)
