Hello, there is a fingerprint right on the center of the lens. (clumsy buddy)
I don't whether to take the camera to a dealer (Ritz Camera stores) or buy one of those cleaning kit you find in Office Depot and Staples.

I'm all the time getting dust, finger prints, or something on my lens so defintely just buy a lens cleaning kit to save you the trouble. I have a blower to blow the loose dust off (you'll want to do that so the dust doesn't scratch your lens) and then a I use a microfiber lens cloth (also available at Ritz) to get finger prints off. This method works great for me.

At Ritz, they also sell Lens Pens which I've been told work really good as well, but I had a store clerk at a Wolf tell me the chemical can damage you lens coating over time. Whether this is true or now I don't know, but you definitely won't hurt your lens with the 1st suggestion as long as you use a dust blower prior to rubbing your lens with the cloth.
