    I recently bought an used Panasonic 25 mm 1.4f from Amazon. The lens came with the MC protector on it. I guess the previous owner used it. I am trying to remove it, but I just can't twist it off. I don't want to damage the lens by putting too much force. Anyone had experience with the protector? It looks like it twists on.[​IMG]

    Use one of those soft rubberlike "waffled" jar lid openers. With the lens facing up on a solid table., place the "waffled" material over the filter and with the palm of your hand press down on the filter ring while trying to twist it counterclockwise. That should do it.

    Just be a bit careful to not press down on the glass part.
