Don't waste your money. I have seldom used more than a microfiber cloth alone. I did use some distilled water on the cloth after my lens took a dive in salt water.

Oh plain tap water works? Why do these cam shops push on the brush? Is the brush better than a cloth? Does the water have to be distilled?

I've never needed a brush. I used distilled so that no residue remained on the lens.

Well i figure if you spend money on distilled water, then might as well get the methanol solution no?

I have filtered water at home through Brita but not sure if that would be considered distilled.
