Scratched the coating of my FA20 :( Question ?
Dec 31, 2012

Hi,

i was cleaning my lenses yesterday and when i got to my FA20 i was trying to remove 2 spots on the front lens element. Then i realized that they were not spot but that the coating was scratched and that there was no more coating there

Fortunately they are at the edge of the glass surface, i took some shots at a direct light source with no visible effect in the photos.

If i saw in the field that it has an effect, my question is  ....

Is it possible to send it to Pentax so that they can repair the coating or do an entire new coating ?

OR

They will have to replace the front lens element !
