I would raise hell with Sigma for selling lenses without lens caps.

And some people question why I have a filter on every lens I own that will accept one...

No question. Life is full of risks, and sometimes I have no choice but to shoot through a window as well...

Good luck with the cleaning/ replacement, Randy!

It DOES have a filter on it, but the hoya is worth 100 dollars which is better then the money I paid for the sigma.
The other lens was unprotected

cheers

First of all I have great sympathy for your situation and I hope you can
solve the cleaning issues satisfactorily.
Now, as a caution to anyone else - why would anyone sit down a camera
anywhere for any amount of time with NO LENS CAP on the lens?
It seems to me that spray paint on a body or on the barrel of a lens
is just an accident. Leaving the glass of a lens exposed is carelessness.
I hope others take a warning from this.

you are right tom. the only problem is that she also uses my k10 when she runs out of batteries on her k100

I was looking at the paper that came with a Pentax lens with SP on the front element yesterday and it said to not use Alcohol to clean it. It did not specify ethanol or isopropyl but suspect they assume the later and would use absolute vodka or pga i.e. ethanol if I were to use alcohol.
