    Vignetting effect. Need to remove the UV filter before using the CPL.
    The viewfinder covers <100% of the final image; you'll not notice the vignet on camera LCD

    Do not stack the CPL over another filter.

    i stack my filters but i get slim ones, so that the vignetting effect can be avoided as far as possible.

    Keep stacking and your filters might get stuck together. Remove every piece of glass from the lens that is not necessary / does not add to the picture. Get a lens hood to protect against stray light in a situation like this (and others). But then again ... in this moment, it's just bad light to take any picture.

    This will depend on what UV filter you use and what CPL you buy and what lens you're using.
    As far as possible, buy everything slim to avoid this.
    I constantly stack filters. My UV filters never come off the lens so when i use a CPL or slot filters, i stack them.
    However i've so far not encountered vignetting, even at 12mm on my old Tokina on a crop camera. I used the B&W XS-Pro and Kenko slim CPL..
    And yes..when stacking CPL, Don't screw in all the way esp when it's hot, you might get both filters stuck together..i always screw in halfway so i can still remove...

    No, I do not stack them. I don't even have an uv filter on my $1k lenses to start off with.
    I do put on nd filters or cpl at times.

    Yes, the B+W brass threads do make a big difference..filters don't get stuck on B+W..they get stuck on other brands pretty often..
