I had a kit that was about a year old and one day I went to use it and the cleaner in the bottle must have gone bad. I put a film on the lens. I know it was not the cloth because I still use them with my new kit. I there a top of the line cleaner ?

I use Eclipse. You can get it at Pictureline.com. Works on sensors or lenses. A microfiber cloth (or three) is the ultimate lense cleaning tool.

I've been using a kit from Giottos. The cloth that came with that kit is the softest piece of material I've ever felt -- they should totally make a blanket from that stuff. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Zeiss has also got one out, but I like the air blower that came with the Giottos kit.

I'm sure that Nikon doesn't suggest it, but I've always used warm breath and a cotton t-shirt. I figure as much as my glass is exposed to the elements, the t-shirt is a treat for them.

Clean cotton is is good but my optician friend says that using your shirt, the one you happen to be wearing that is, is bad juju.

He says lots of people come in with glasses that have, over time gone hazy with micro scratches from grit that gets embedded in their shirt, especially the bottom hem. My guess is that grit's even rougher on optical coatings.

Just what I've heard.

Again, microfiber, microfiber, microfiber and the warm breath thing. Get'em at any optical center. One tiny little cloth will set you back five bucks or so but once you use it, you'll go buy spares. Cool designs and patterns too. You don't need a cleaner or anything, they lift oil right off. Clean'em by hand with dishwashing liquid and hang'em up to dry.
