I recently bought a new Zeiss with T coating. Would it be safe to use locally bought lens cleaners on it or should I order the kit sold by Zeiss?

I would see about getting a lens pen and cloth.. If you can't find what you want, we have some for sale....Here are a few that we carry and you can buy online or call and place an order!!!

What you have should work, as long as it is made for cameras, or optics in general.

 

If you need to use a liquid cleaner, make sure it doesn't contain ammonia of any kind.

I like to use compressed air, like you would find at an office supply store.

Blow off all the small stuff and then hit it with the Zeiss lens cleaners.

I usually blow off the small particles and then give the lens a gentle wisk with the lens brush. I also have a Zeiss lens cleaning kit and it works great on any lens coatings. I do try to minimize the amount I clean my lenses by using scope or bino/spotting scope covers whenever I am done using my optics.
