Hi guys...
I just got my new Nikkor 18-35mm f3.5-4.5 today. Nice lens, but somehow it's just way too light compared to the 24-120mm.
I've got a question. How sensitive is the lens coating ? What would damage it ? What should I do, if I accidentally touch it ?
Would the coating be damaged if I, accidentally, brushed a paper "tip" onto the lens surface ?
