    Unhappy UV Filter... Scratching

    How do u guys clean up ur UV or Skylight filter? Shld have taken more care of it, its now scratched when I tried to clean it with a piece of tissue. Hold under direct light and I go at the linessss.....

    BTW, besides putting on the lens cap, do u guys store ur lenses in lens bags as well? Double protection for extra kiasuism?

    Throw away the scratches glasses and replace with a new ones..why not using wiping cloth and liquid cleaner for your filters and lens?

    Yes, you're right. There is pro & con...but, do you think that a few thousand dollars lens protected with a hundred over dollars filter make sense?

    Guys with big guns, kindly advise? Do you really need those cheap glasses infront of your lens?

    You meant that one should get expensive filters to protect expensive lens?
    If so, whats the point? Ex filter damage, also heart pain. Then must get something cheaper to protect your filters
