Actually, you can kill two birds with one stone. Adorama also has this, an 18% gray lens cleaning cloth.

Next question that I need some guidence on:
- With another lens being a while down the road, what are some other accesssories that I should be looking at to purchase pronto. I have already purchased an extra battery and card and looking at several bags.
- What are your recommendations for reference material and reading. Books magazine websites etc to advice on knowledge from a novice standpoint.
lens hoods for your lens,
a remote or cable shutter release,
a tripod is a good idea

both the canon and the metz flashes are very good for the eos system. Can not go with either
