Hi Bros,

Can any bros advice what to do? I got a UV filter stuck to my lens, unable to unscrew it out... what should i do?? Don't dare to use too much force as i am afraid it might spoil my lens!

Did you try holding a cloth in your hand and try to unscrew it?
Same thing happen to me before but I use the cloth and unscrew it, it works. ;)

I don't know about you.
Sorry if it won't help. :embrass:

Use those 5.5" by 5.5" (those with little holes) rubber mat from the supermarket to grip the filter.

You both have said it good.
If I may OT slightly but still with respect to stuck filters.
Recently what happened to me - my filter holder ring got really stuck with my ND4. It's a very thin ring stuck to another almost equally thin filter. No luxury of having a thick lens body to hold while trying to wring the filter off with the cloth/rubber foam. How ah, like that?

Thanks for the advice bros out there! Appreciate it....

i just managed to get the filter unscrewed from the lens! Used a cloth and twist and turn here and there.... finally after some "cow" force used, managed to get it out and lucky me there is no damage done to my lens! =)

Thanks for the pointers again! cheers
