Seriously. Get some Cat Crap for clean lenses that don’t fog. See link

Cat Crap has an expensive price but it is a cleaner and anti-fogger..

The trick to spotless lenses is to rinse whatever you use with distilled water, blow off with air, and then let dry. Don't wipe with anything.

I'll echo LKH, use DISTILLED WATER! I don't even dry them or wipe them. Put Distilled Water in a spray bottle and spray like crazy, liberally. Set aside to dry. Voila no residue on the lenses.

Zeiss lens wipes, buy a box it last couple years

From: Shuteye

Go to Sam's Club and get a box of 200 OptiPlus lens wipes. They come in little sealed packs like alcohol swabs. Open and unfold. I use them on my glasses, binoculars, scopes and camera lens. I carry some in my backpack and my pocket. They work really great. Have used them for years and my eye doctor told me they work just as well, and safe on the lens, as the expensive stuff she sells.

What Shuteye said is what I have had good results with.

I have the Zeiss wipes too. That said I never use them. I’ll blow on the glass and get the dust off. I figure every time I use one I’m adding some degree of microscopic scratches to the glass and over time they’ll start to show.
