I use Kodak Lens Cleaning Paper, 50 sheets for about 3 bucks. The package has "How to clean a lens" instructions on the back, they seem to work OK.

When you use the cleaning paper get the cleaning fluid too...

First get a blower brush and blow anything off the lense,,you don`t want to drag anything arround with the paper...

Then dampen one sheet,,,then rub the lense in circular patterns till you go all the way arround then dry off with a clen one..

There are a lot of other methods,,,tools to do this but this is the prefered method by pros using SLR equipment with really expensive lenses...

3M makes a lense cloth that you can throw in the washing machine that is really soft too,,but the lense solution is still used to clear off finger prints without having to rub,,,you do not want to rub hard on the lense coatings..

I`ve used this method for about 20+ years with no coating wear/scratches

I've used one on my 6490 and it's great.
The best thing to do after that is to buy the lens adapter/55mm cap and put a skylight filter on the end and just leave it there.

I love the Lenspen also, I was a little concerned about that buffing surface causing scratches but they say it won't. The adapter and UV filter will definatly be purchased in the near future, especially for most of the photography i do.
