Well for the camera body itself I've never really needed much as I always endeavour to keep it away from any dirt in the first place, but I'm sure a very lightly moist wipe would get all but the toughest grime off.

As for lenses, a microfibre cloth and a lens pen are always in my camera bag when I'm out and about to remove any dust from the lenses if needed before shooting, and as I use a DSLR I'll often have a dust blower handy as well just incase I get a bit of dust on the sensor.

You gota get it dirty first! I use a good quality 2inch paint brush for the outside of the camera if I am in a dirty (dusty) place my gear will be cleaned before it goes into the bag I dont change lenses at all if I can help it, I can still use my legs for getting closer or further away. My lenses will always have a uv or skylight on so that protects the front element.:thumb:

i dont have to change lens fortunatly so just need to know what to keep the actual lens clean itself ! so by the looks of it simple microfibre cloth plus some lens cleaning wipes?

does that sound about right ?

I'd use a blower (Giottos Rocket or similar) on the lens first, before using a cloth or a LensPen, to get rid of any grit that could scratch.
