    Either or...

    dun have too much glass in front of the lens. Each additional piece causes problems.

    Never stack.. it doesnt add value (infact with additional glass, it only degrades iq)

    Use CPL on its own

    can be done, but try to avoid at all cost....
    personally, never find any benefical reason in stacking...

    Shot same day, within the same hour from each other. When stacked, gives a generally soft/fuzzy look.

    Stacked


    Not Stacked (only UV no CPL)

    more filters = more chance of flare = more chance of internal reflections = more chance of vignetting

    Deadly combination....
    more chance of internal reflections = more chance of vignetting, because after internally reflecting, less light managed to reach the corners of the frame?

    er, everything after more filters stems from using more filters, or stacking them.

    sorry if there were any misunderstandings, i can see how you arrived at that conclusion.

    the most i will stack is maybe two ND/GND/Pol if needed. Stacking with a UV serves no beneficial purpose.

    maybe ts is stacking to protect his uv from scratches. but again doesn't make sense cos the uv should be cheaper than a cpl.

    either way, stacking degrads the iq like the bros mentioned.
