Didn't know that your shirt is made of microfibre cloth.

Better don't use your shirt anymore. Normal fibre with dust even scratch my spectacles. The scratches build over time. Suddenly I had to change my glasses.

No lah. No scratches.
Most of my lens protected by B+W filters.
But I do clean the optics using my tshirt.
So far, no problem, no scratches or what so ever.



But it is good to clean your optics using a microfiber cloth with cleaning solution.
I do have these stuffs, but when I'm out shooting, there's no opportunity to take out the stuffs to clean the optics.

For the filter, clean it the usual way.

For the front element of the lens, just take some extra precautions:
1. Blow the dust away
2. Apply suitable lens cleaning fluid with the right amount
3. Use a clean microfibre cloth and gently wipe the lens in a circular motion.

I suggest to only clean the front element when necessary. Don't want to wear out the coatings. OT already.

Yeah, to be safe, follow kiankheong's SOP.

I wipe oil mark on the optics using my shirt _when_ i'm out shooting.
Not all my lens have filters mounted on them.

I'm having the same flare problem with my HOYA UV filter. Thinking of removing the filter when I shoot in low-light conditions...thing is, I don't know how! Hehe. Should I turn it clockwise or c-clockwise when I'm facing the lens?
