Excerpt: I have just owned the filter a short time but was looking forward to a easy access filter slot. Instead I learned I must remove the lens from the camera before inserting or removing it. In addition, the small wheel used to adjust the polarizing filter, does not protrude enough for easy access.
Cons: Diddicult To Insertremov, Difficult To Insert
