I bought a lens cleaning kit at best buy. It's got a micro fiber cloth, air blower, with an attachable brush and some clean solution. It does the job pretty darn well.

They do but I didn't care for them. I got mine at the wally mart. It will do for now. One day I will up grade to one of the camera bags that looks like purse.

I'm awful, I have a lens cleaning kit but usually use my shirtsleeve. :oops:

For camera bags, I have a LowePro, but I don't like it because it's too bulky.
I just bought this one:

I like that it looks like a purse. Z is getting this one for me for my bday next month, also a nice bag:

There are some great options here for ladies camera bags:
