Cleaning Lens & Filter with Kit
How do you properly clean a lens or a filter with a cleaning kit?
I didn't get a lens pen. Instead, got a kit from CP that has a huge blower, cloth, lintfree paper and some cleaning solution.
i poured the cleaning solution on my UV filter then used the paper to clean it off... but instead, it seems i scratched off the coating for the filter. then got this "screeching" feeling, as if scratching my nails against the blackboard.
anyone care to advise? thanks.

u shouldn't pour the soln directly onto the filter. u should instead drop 2 to 3 drops of soln onto the lintfree paper.

filters with coating are difficult to clean, thus the "screeching" feeling. never use too much pressure to clean.
