    if yr lens is still under warranty, u can bring it to the service centre to gt them to help u clean. it is better n u can prevent having scratches by cleaning yrself.

    cheers.

    cleaning solution specifically for lens and lens tissue should do... just spray a tiny bit on the lens tissue and wipe it, after that use a dry lens tissue to clean it up.

    bad news.. i found the scratch ..it is on my kit lens...it comes with the d80 i bought..

    the hoya filter len was fitted immediately when I bought the camera....
    though it went into nikon centre before..(cos of my sd card slot)...
    hmm....dun understand.

    do i have to live with pixs with the dots in the future..

    those dots are most probably cause by dust on your sensor... just send it to NSC for cleaning...
    as for scratch... if you have attached a filter, why does your lens element still get scratched?
