Oil Stain in Polariser Filter
I have a Hoya Circular Polariser filter that has oil stain across part of the surface between the 2 sandwiched glasses. I suspect this is leaked from the lubrication applied to the rotating elements. I noticed this recently when I took the filter out for a general clean (bought this some years back). Does anybody know if this is considered a defect? Is there a chance I can get a replacement?
