    My Other half has a Sony digital camera interchangeable lens, I use canon, i always have a uv filter on my lenses from minute one and use a microfibre cloth to clean them on the occasion there is a spot or smear which is rare... her lens has no such protection it has a mark on it a smear it looks like a stray finger i have no idea how long its been there but any views on the best way to clean it would be helpful I heard micro fibre directly on the lens surface can strip off the coating...???

    You could always just leave it and create a complex removal action with layers in photoshop which can be applied to all the photos , or you could apply a cloth Wink dont worry just do it - as they say

    Just blow on it to get moisture from your breath and then rub gently in a circular motion with a microfiber cloth.

    In the good old days, press photographers wore neck-ties so that they'd always have a lens cleaning cloth handy!
