How hard is it to scratch a lens?
Sep 1, 2014

I don't want to start the endless "to filter or not to filter" debate... but I have recently been filterless with my 70-200 f4L and it always makes me nervous.  I'm not worried about dropping it and breaking it necessarily, but how hard is it to scratch the lens surface?  Anyone ever scratch it with the lens cap or anything?  I've always been curious about this.  Thanks!
