Could I have some opinions about lens cleaning solution?

There seem to be a vast selection on the market – are there any to avoid?

Is there a good case for using lens cleaning wipes containing a cleaning agent?

Unless the lens is really dirty, your breath and a microfiber cloth.

I usually use a rocker blower and sometimes a good martern hair brush to make sure I don’t have any large debris that can scratch the surface. I then breathe on the lens and use a Spudz or Hama mikrofiber cloth. I do have a 2oz bottle of B+W Lens Cleaner II solution, but I think I have had to use it once or twice since I bought it some years ago.

I like lens pens in combination with a blower. The pens are in two different sizes, the large with a circular felt cleaner and brush. The smaller size tip is ideal for getting into corners of viewfinders. I’ve been using the pens since they first came out without problems.

Thanks Ron / Peter / Dave for your advice.

I very recently got a lens which needs the front element cleaning, so will order some cleaning solution.

I have a lens pen, which does work well.
