Hi guys, any solution on how to remove it? I tried using lens cleaning solution as well as lens pen but both doesnt work and the stain from fingerprint is still there. Thanks for any help. :)

Is the stain caused by (e.g permanent marker ink) left on the finger or what?

How much does that filter cost you? if it is not really that much, just dump that filter, you are better off without the filter anyway.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I just bought the UV filter and the fingerprint was already there. I managed to remove the fingerprint using mf cloth but there is this sort of like greasy stain which i cant remove it.

Use Isopropyl alcohol that you can buy at a drugstore.
