I'd start by talking to a Fuji repair technician and see where they get their parts or if they can sell you the part.

This thread is probably dead but I thought Id add my 2 cents worth. Your S9500 camera lens is threaded to allow filters and add on lenses. The price of a 1A Skylight or UV filter is very inexpensive and should have been attached immediately before you left the store or as soon as you got the camera in your hands. Any scratch you have now would be on the cheap filter and NOT on your lens. To the both of you with a scratched lens, no sympathy from me. Bite the bullet and buy another lens and do it right next time.

How bad is the scratch? Sometimes, even a bad scratch won't show up in images (although you may have some flare issues because of it).

I have no experience with it (so, use it at your own risk), but you may want to try something like Liquid Lens (a product advertised to remove scratches in eyeglasses).
