uv filters and CPL's. A Question

For those who keep a UV filter on their lenses at all times.


When you use a Polarizing Filter, do you remove the UV and put the CPL directly on the lens? Or, do you mount the CPL on top of the UV?

I keep a UV filter on all of my lenses at all times. I rarely use a CPL anymore, as I have found them rather awkward to manipulate (and the loss of light is not encouraging, either). When I have used a CPL, I have taken off the UV filter and replaced it with the CPL.

I'm not a "UV filter always" person (depends on the lens and conditions), but if I have a UV on and want a polarizer, I mount the CPL on top of the UV, and put a lens hood on the CPL (for built-in lens hoods, adjust the CPL and then extend the hood).

The only time I'd bother with removing the UV is

(1) When UV+CPL causes vignetting (e.g. wide lenses on a film body)
(2) Flare-prone conditions
(3) UV filter isn't multi-coated
