Little nick on one objective of my Conquest HDs - should I care? (1 Viewer)

I was just cleaning my HD 8x32s and was chagrined to see a tiny chip in one of the objectives. Perhaps I drank too much of the "you can shoot them" koolaid - I have been taking them on my kayak which is a really tough environment in particular - and pretty much shove them into every bag imaginable. I guess it's time for some of those ugly flip down lens guards.

Should I care? Will it cause glare? I've noticed nothing.

Hi,

optically, you will probably not see any problems. The amount of objective damage which still does not visibly affect the image is quite surprising. Even if you see that it generates glare, you can still use a sharpie to blacken it.
