pardon me for my lack of knowledge. But is there any warranty for the filter? I searched Hoya website and it was not very helpful. I searched this forum as well and only managed to see a lot of threads for Buy/Sell.
I was using the CPL and trying to unscrew it by taking out. Suddenly, the thing glass element of the filter just came off and dislodge from other piece of the CPL. And the very very thin metal ring actually snaps.
I was not even using any force strength. This marks my 4th time removing it from my lens. My heart pain as it didnt come cheap as well for this CPL, having bought ard $190 from shop when I didnt even know the market price yet.
I did a search from the internet and realised that some ppl having similar problem too.
