I posted this in the Canon accessories forum but nobody seem to go there =P

Anyhow, I haven't really used my Lee filters since I bought them, but the first time I used my two GNDs they became scratched. The first filter was scratches trying to put my big stopper in. The second was scratched trying to fit it into the holder. I am contemplating getting new ones but if they are just going to be scratches again like that I rather not. Are there any tips and ideas? And yes they are scratched to the extent that it appears in the photos.

I don't know why they are getting scratched
but if you don't get any replies, you could go a little
off topic and try here:

Everybody there is very knowledgable about the Lee System.

The resin filters are pretty soft and will get scratched along the edges where they slide into the holder. I only handle mine by the edges both to prevent scratches and keep finger oil off them. What do you keep them in when not in use?

I don't know how you are scratching them. When I'm sliding my filters into the holder they don't touch anything else. And when they are out they go straight back to the pouch. No marks at all.

Maybe just a case of being more careful. Especially whe. You pay he prices for Lee filters.
