If you scratch a Camera Lens, only the glass can be replaced?

No, you have not, thank God, but I wondered as I realized that my lens cap was not on my digital Slr Camera in the case. Can I replace only scratched the surface, or you have to get a totally objective New?

… very little! I've seen pictures of lenses with small scratches and even one or two small chips taken from the lens (1 mm square size). Could not be said of the photos. A small scratch or chip is what you expect from a mishandling of the lens. The glass is very, very hard and will resist most things. Any force strong enough to do anything more than superficial damage will most likely break any filter on a lens, filter glass is also very box – thin, but strong. Now, not only has the object that broke the filter to damage the lens, but now the filter fragments, themselves! Filter glass is more likely to scratch the lens than the object that broke the filter in the first place! I've seen pictures of several lenses after taking a fall, where the lens hit something and blew the filter. Most of the lenses had to be sent to the manufacturer to remove the filter ring! One sustained heavy damage. Pictures taken with the lens prior to repair showed little effect on the photos (well, substantial damage was not more focused way, but that's a 6 + foot drop onto concrete …). In addition, filters can affect your photos, in fact, that's what we're meant to do! Putting a cheap filter $ 1000 + "L" only to protect the lens is to make that goal, well, shit. I had a target that was not focusing very well, things were soft. I realized that this goal (I bought used) had a UV filter on it that I never touched. I removed the filter, the difference was remarkable. The filter has been sitting on my shelf since then. My advice: Use filters for the following reasons only. photographic effects – the polarization, the star-burst, neutral-density, etc. only protection in terms of damage the environment – Arena, hail, fog, water, etc. For each day of shooting, use a lens hood! The hood prevents most things from getting too close to the lens, and gives the advantage (well, the main use), prevention of lens flare to belittle the light sources off-axis. Most-de-la-come first-lens with umbrellas for a reason. For cleaning, get a microfiber cloth for small issues. I also got a pen "lens" that works very well, one end is a retractable brush for brushing loose dust, dirt, etc from the lens. The other is a sort of "micro-polish" of sorts, which can be cleaned fingerprint stains, etc. And if you ever scratch or mar the lens, take some pictures through it to see if you can even say, I bet you will not be able to do it!
