Hi all, Happy Easter!

I was taking some macros today when I accidentally bumped the camera forward and into the object!!!!!!!

When all was said and done, I looked at the lens and there appears to be a small scratch in it!!! HELP! IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO? WILL THIS RUIN FUTURE PICTURES?

Ironically enough, the last time i was on the board, I was reading the thread about protecting the lens -- I feel like an idiot.

HELP! THANKS!!!!!!!

I've heard that CD replenishing products do wonders with those, as long as the scratches are tiny...
you should consider an adapter and a uv filter.

Thanks Amiroquai, can you recommend exactly what to purchase?

I will readily admit I really don't know a thing about adapters and filters. Can someone tell me what to get off the B&H site ?

Thanks so much

A single small scratch probably isn't going to affect much but you'll want to protect from other mishaps.. I don't know about b&h but I use the phayee adapter and 62mm UV filter available from Rong Jin (ebay, search FZ20 in cameras and photo).. There is also available a Raynox (?) set that comes with the adapter, a UV, Polarizer, and another filter (don't know what off the top), for $50.. You should find it as well searching fz20 on ebay..

Good luck
Jeff

I don't know much about the cd replenishing products but I believe they're all pretty much the same , you could look up brands on google.
