Sorry for hijacking this: how about the rubber ring of Zeiss Batis lenses? - that one is a dust magnet and difficult to clean. And no way I would touch that one with a tooth brush.

In fact, its is a dust magnet and one of the "issues" I dislike about this Zeiss "solution"; it's also not very user friendly from a "touch" perspective, IMO.

Any ideas?

There are "dust tapes" in the market done for that - They are mainly used/manufactured for catching/removing animal fur from sofas, carpets, etc., but can be easily adapted for this lens care/cleaning/tender.

All the best,
