I have switched to B+W filters the last couple of years. Is it my imagination or are liquid smudges really tough to remove from these filters? I will often have to shoot without hood and somehow there are some smudges from perhaps skin contact. I have used Zeiss wipes and have to use several to remove. I also noticed that the B+W seem to be more prone to scratches. Anyone have same experience?

It's not your imagination.  They are a pain.  Still not as bad as Heliopan stuff though... I love the look and quality of my Heliopan CPLs, but dear god it seems like they are designed to be as difficult as possible to rid of even minor smudges.
