Hi,
If you have smudges on your lens what is a safe way to clean them off?

I clean mine with this Nikon lens pen.

Any clean microfibre cloth will do.  Don't rub around the lens, rub straight across once, then change to a clean bit on the cloth & repeat, otherwise you just drag dirt around the glass & risk scratching it.

Moist eyeglass lens cloth or camera lens cloth, nothing made out of paper.

Try not to handle it, and you wouldn't need to clean it... ;-)

Now marketed for eyeglasses, these were formulated for camera lenses. Zeiss makes some of the best optical glass and lenses in the world.

Here's a great lens cleaning solution you make yourself. It's for high-end optics where only the best will do. You can order the alcohol from your local pharmacy.
There's lots of good info on technique as well.  I figure y'all have some other optics laying around... :
