    Do you use the lens cleaning solution? There seems to be a new one, have you tried it?

    I usually do that too.. Purest form of water (assuming no saliva comes out together..).. but it seems like Hoya HMC Pro1 likes to be treated differently. I "horrrr...." until out of breath still not clean.. Lucky I only have 1 piece of that filter!! Must change to NC!!

    I never clean my filters like that. I just use my microfiber cloth to clean it in a circular manner from inside to outside. After that use blower to blow can le hehe...works all the time.

    Be careful with microfibre cloth, some can scratch the multicoating, others leave a thin residue which can cause flare.

    Yupz i'm extremely careful when it comes to filters and especially lens. I always clean it very gently.

    You can consider the Canon Powershot A620. Or you can wait for the new A700 to be released on shelves but at a higher cost somewhat.
