Thread: care of lens

    Default care of lens

    hello..

    just wondering for lenses like sigma/tamron 14mm with curved surface at front of lens barrel, how do one take care not to leave prints/ prevent scratches to the surface?

    i understand for standard lenses, we can use an UV-filter as a protective layer too.

    any ideas/exp to share, folks?

    I guess there is no way other than just lens cap for those fisheyes, even you can mount a filter it will vignette too.

    some suggest having the hoods always on as a " protective wall "

    Is there a hood for fisheye lenses?

    I think most fisheye lenses already come with a built-in (non-removable) hood.
    But given the fisheye coverage, these hoods tend to be small and do not provide much physical protection.

    That's excactly what I thought, there is no way to really have a "hood" that covers the lens for a 180 deg view.

    Dont worry la, there are professionals who used all their lenses without any filter protection for years without any problem.

    Just be careful and a few scratches on the element is not going for affect the image.
