I have dust and finger print on the lens. All of this is on front of the lens as lens was clean when I bought it new.

I have Rocket Air Blaster from Giottos but don't have any brush, liquid or clothe? I was able to blow away most of the dust butsome dustand fingerprint is still there.

WhatdoI need to do a good andsafecleaning joband what is a good method to clean it?

Is there any special brand microfiber cloth I need to get?

I don't have a brush.

Where to buy them? Does B&H has this stuff?

What kind of brush I should get? Thereare goat hair, camel hair brushes, etc. I don't know what is the difference and what to get?

What brand of lens cleaning fluid does not hurt the lens coatings?

I've never had to use anything more than a 'lens cloth', available at any camera store.

Microfiber cloth ... 3 for $1.99 in the auto section at WalMart. Or a big bag at Sams Club for about $10. Or get ONE at a camera store for $5 to $15 each. Your choice. I buy mine by the bag (two bags in three years) and rather than wash them, use them new for the optics, relegating them to the car when I change to a new one for the lenses. I swear by them (and not at them)!

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Also, Sams Club has Zeiss Lens Cleaning cloths (moist towelettes), 90 for $9. They are very good for stubborn smudges and do not harm your camera lenses unlike some "glasses" cleaning supplies can.

I bought two pack of 90 cloths (180 total)for $8.86 at Sams Club yesterday. They have a special going on it...

They work great. Thanks for the tip.
