Replace it.

Either the lens or the camera.

You've been shopping for a new camera for some time now. I believe you've just received an additional incentive.

A clean scratch will not show on a shot. If the lens is chipped it could show a slight flare, so the answer is put a small spot of flat black paint onto the chip. A lens that is covered in fine scratches results in a lack of contrast.

He's saying that, if the scratch is clean, it shouldn't affect image quallity, so you shouldn't concern yourself about it.

He's saying that, if the lens is chipped, not scratched, then the chip can cause flare, so you should put something on it to block light so it won't cause flare, and that a small drop of flat black paint is a good choice.

I agree with his suggestions.

geriatric, if I am incorrect, I apologize. Since the OP comes and goes her more frequently than yourself, I thought I would do him and you a favor and speed up the process a little.

"Is the sratch causing any problem?" is the real question. Do some testing. The want ad section of the newspaper is a standard test patern.

Flare is harder to test for but using the same test patern, try shooting outdoors with the sun just barely hitting the lens. That is the worse case and many lenses will perform badly without a scratch.

Go shoot some pictures and look for problems. If you don't see any issues, then there aren't any for you.
