Hi John,

I am not sure I fully understand your practical need. Is this 1/35 lens or bigger?

But, recently I used Gunze flat clear in aerosol and it gives a non reflective effect...It's not totally flat and somewhat added clarity to the really flat tam undercoat.

Hope this helps.

Dany

you can buy clear but none reflective camera lens filters-never ever use a spray paint like supstance on any kind of optical lens

camera filters are mostly screw in. My rifle scopes all have screw mount rims though 60mm is not a common camera filter size. Google 60mm non-reflective glass UV 1A lens filters. If they are made in that size you should see it somewhere in the results
Hope this helps-good luck
