not a particularly good idea, cos PL will reduce 1 to 2 stops of light. Thus in low light conditions you are actually treading on your own toe if you use PL. Also PL will increase saturation for some colours, you may not want that in every shot.

No you can't. Polarizer will reduce the amount of light into your camera sensor but uv won't. Both are 2 different filters.

I see. Thanks

By the way, how much PL and IR lens cost now?
