After shooting fireworks pics for the past two days, i realized that there are small round "markings" on my kenko filter(those coated ones). it is as if the coating has peeled off or something, using lens cleaning solution cant seem to get them off.

Does anyone know how this could have happened..? Thanks

Effects on smoke on filters may only leave residue on the filter, just clean it off with lens tissue or microfiber cloth.

Coating peeled off? Did u scrub on it or something? Maybe it's time for u to upgrade to B+W, then all your cleaning difficulties solved.

i was thinking mabbe u can apply some steam on it..off a boiling kettle mabbe, it should help to loosen the dirt on the filter..

That being said, i have no idea about the effect of steam on filters :bsmilie:

but i think logically it makes sense, i have this steam cleaner @ home..comes with a scrub...u basically aim it @ like kitchen tiles or wat...steam it, then the oil comes loose..just wipe off..
