    Default Using polarizing filter

    Hi guys,
    I bought a Hoya circular polarizing filter; attach it onto my kit lens & use it. I found the filter is hard to adjust/rotate; there’s resistance when I tried to rotate to achieve optimal result.
    Will this put a stress on the auto-focus lens? Or even damage the lens?
    Any comments is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Should have opened and tested it @the shop. Anyway hold the filter in your hands and rotate till it feels loose.

    My kit lens is Nikon AFS 18-55mm lens.
    Is it suppose to be very free rotating?

    Try going back to the shop and ask for exchange.
