    Default is this normal?

    hi all... ytd pop down to artworksfoto and grabbed myself 3 uv filter and a cleaning kit set
    however, this morning when i was about to fix the filters on, i noticed that under direct torchlight, spots appears on one of the filter whereas the other 2 were not affected
    is this a manufacturer's defect? couldnt see the spots when under normal light/sunlight though..

    it quite normal, those are super tiny dust that cant affect your picture. its nearly impossible to clean your filter perfectly under normal circumstances.

    even the inside of lens cant have such tiny dust spects. dont worry as long as u cant see any dust under normal sunlight its clean enough, just keep shooting

    probably minor imperfections during the manufacture of the filter.

    If it doesn't affect your photos, don't need to worry about it.
    If it really bothers you, you could try exchanging it. Not sure if the shop will accede to your request or not.
    Exploring! :)

    Looks like dust. Does it smear when you wiped it lightly? If yes, then may be fungus.
