Cleaning lens

Has any one used any lens cleaner for their digital cameras? My cameras lens is a little dirty at this moment and I am thinking of getting a lens cleaning kit. Any idea which one is good and how much it will cost?

yeah it dint posed any problem till date.
but u can make it mild...add some water!

and no need to buy those useless cleaning kits and all.
 
Colin!!!!! Damn!!! Sachinontop..best of luck buddy. :D

Isopropyl Alcohol does seem like the best option. Use with non-woolly cloth..

hmm... will check it out, i guess a safer option would be isopropyl alcohol mixed with water
have been using isopropyl alcolol on glasses, and visor for night driving. works amazing.

but camera lenses come with anti reflection and other coatings, so am not comfortable using this on lenses.

however I use "Jenova" lens cleaning solution. Its a methyl alcohol detergent based cleaning soln.works amazing. you also get lens cleaning tissues. using toilet ones leaves its own dust on it.
 
isopropyl alcohol is known to react with certain chemicals that are used in some lenses. And getting it from a chemical store and diluting it for use on lenses is not a good idea since we aren't sure abt the dilution needed.

you get Bausch and Lomb soft tissues that are ispropyl alcohol soln. these were for cleaning spectacle lenses. When I tried this on my camera lens it was a pain cleaning it.
