Does anyone know how I can get this scratch out of the back of my inon uwl h100 lens.
Super bummed... I can see it and I'm sure it will effect future photos. Thanks

It is possible to remove lens scratches with cerium oxide powder in water and a drill-mounted rotary pad.  

However, the polish will remove the lens coating plus a minute amount of optical glass.

 

If it was my lens, I would first contact the dealer or Inon directly, maybe they can replace or repair the lens.

Hi,
you can try to find the same lens, with a front element problem, and make one out of two...
Have done that with the Inon 165 fisheye lens.

As has been explained before, you can get it out of the way of the sensor....
