My Zeal Z3's are amazing. I've used a lot of different goggles and they work great in everything I've experienced these past 23-24 days so far this season, except for very low light/night riding. They've never fogged even with my face mask under the goggles, comfortable with a wide range of vision. Then again, I didn't buy them thinking they were one lens to do it all.. more like one lens that handles the vast majority of conditions very well.
OP, how are you measuring the change? Keep the lens in a dark area for a while, go outside, snap a picture from the inside with the sun on the other end. Let them sit for a few minutes facing the sun, then snap a picture in similar fashion as before. Post up the two pictures. Or.. just ride them. The change should be very subtle but it's there and enough to make a difference. As for the reflection you're experiencing, wish I could help. Contact Smith.
