    Get yourself a lenspen, have a few rounds over the stains then clean it off with lint free paper.

    Blow and brush just to be safe, then breath gently on the lens, preferably not after a meal of orluak or laksa!

    Very quickly, before the vapor evaporates, wipe with a section of clean mf cloth in one direction. Repeat as necessary, each time with a new clean section of mf cloth.

    post picture of your lens so we can administer the right remedy.

    one solution is to buy eclipse lens cleaner.

    Wash your specs cloth. After using it for your specs there is sweat and other stuffs in - things that give you the oily stains on your lens. Use a clean cloth, always.

    I think he means the part which goes into the camera, not the outer facing element.
