    Technically, yes, It can be done. But recommendations from many users is, don't do it.
    Some Reasons includes:
    - It may cause vignetting. esp on UWA.
    - more glass = possible reduction in image quality
    - High chance of getting your CPL stuck on the UV filter...

    But why some people still do it, laziness....too lazy to remove the UV to then put on the CPL
    Too many great equipments but too little quality photos. [My Flickr] | [My Blog]

    i remember asking this same question some time back, and the answer like already said is, yes u can.. but the less u put in front of ur lens, the better. for some instances, such as shooting into the sun or a bright light source, its better to even remove ur UV filter, to avoid flare. only stack filters if u need to, for a particular effect. but if not, try to avoid it
