People fail to realize that the coating on modern Leica lenses is hard. If
it weren't there would be a hellova lot of complaints. But there aren't. I
use breath, spit, ROR, tee shirt, shorts, knit shirt, microcloth, whatever
is handy and CLEAN and SOFT. 22 years with Leica optics and zero problems.
