So that's why they sell UV filters.... or am I wrong here? So I know this happened a long time ago and never thought to bring it to the forum to show what a stupid mistake I made. But maybe someone out there will see this and pickup UV filters for their lenses. Now I'm stuck with an EF-S damanged lens and hoping to move to a full frame soon at which point I won't be able to sell this for a decent price. I still use it, takes two seconds to fix in photoshop, so it's not all a loss.
