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...???

Not sure what your problem is. Just clean it.
Lens coating are pretty tough, wipe the smudge off.
Lenspen if you are worried
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 dont worry just do it - as they say
This overkill I know
Just blow on it to get moisture from your breath and then rub gently in a circular motion with a microfiber cloth.
Hi Ok thanks for your help micro fiber it is
In the good old days, press photographers wore neck-ties so that they'd always have a lens cleaning cloth handy!
