Just found a scratch on my fisheye lens. Is it done or can it be repaired in some way?

Please help.

More info would help, e.g., which lens, location of scratch, size, wet or dry lens, etc. Is distortion evident in photos, where, how much?

Unfortunately it's not on the dome its on the outermost lens of my 10.5 nikon fisheye.

Out of the housing in direct sunlight I can see a small "spot" which brought me to search for debris or damage.

any ideas?

Can't honestly see that there is a viable cost effective fix.

 

Any abrasive will take out the coating which is critical on a WA lens.

 

If I had no scruples and carried insurance then drop it in a puddle - for those with even lower standards there is EBAY.

 

Tim was looking for another 10.5 - maybe he will make you an offer?

I would guess that Nikon could replace the front element for less than the cost of a new lens. If not, it may be time to replace.

Seen this article? You didn't say what actual effect it was having on your pictures.

 

 

that is a very interesting study. thanks for sharing.

to answer your question, i get a small, light, "rainbow" octogon when shooting with side light. I have a shade on my dome so with luck it wont effect the uw shots.

You don't really expect me to have waited this long to replace mine, do you?

 

My new 10.5 is doing very nicely, by the way:
