First and foremost, DO NOT USE RAIN X ON SPORT OPTICS. It has a chemical that will remove anti-reflective coatings. There are several ways to safely clean lens. If your lens are just smudged, say from fingerprints, you can use a Lenspen. Simple and safe. Also, Zeiss makes prepackaged lens cleaning cloths that work great. For anti-fog treatments, you can use Parker's Perfect or treated cloths such as the ones by Nikon called No Fog. I have used these products and I have found that they leave behind a slight film that I'm sure doesn't have any real effect on viewing, however, it is visible. All of these treatments do not eliminate fogging, but they do help.

We have a blue font post!!!

 

I like the Zeiss moist, pre packaged cloths too.

I also like to use a can of compressed air to blow off all the small debrise BEFORE I use the cloths.

yes, canned air is a GODsend - i use a soft brush from a lens pen, and NEVER touch the glass.
