    Any suggestions on how to prevent bubbles from forming on the dome lens and the filters that does not degrade clarity? I get them between the lens and the filter and it's driving my autofocus nuts because the camera gets locked onto the bubbles on the glass. Rain-X?

    I always have this problem. I just end up taking off the lens and wiping off the bubbles once I get down to a convenient spot. It can be a PITA but better than trying to deal with the AF focusing on the bubbles and ruining a shot.

    Just wave your hand a few times in front of the port before you are ready to shoot. The bubbles will fly away.
