I like to jam my filters on sooper dooper mega tight and never remove them.


That would be an advantage when selling the lens. "Filter already attached, and it will never fall off!"

If selling the lens, with or without the filter, I will always unsooper undooper untighten it properly back to normal.

As mentioned elsewhere, if plastic lens threads are involved, there could be a step up ring involved as well. This way the lens threads are like new. Likewise with any reversible hoods.

Step-up rings are a good way to keep costs down and keep your filter set one size. A good polorizing filter can be expensive if you are using different filter sizes. One disadvantage is their bulk size.

When I bought my Nikon 18-200 lens I also bought a UV filter and a circular polarizer filter for it. The UV stays on the lens all the time for protection. I have used the CP lens several times and at no time had any problems attaching or removing either filter. I mount them with the CP lens first followed by the UV for protection. Today
I removed the UV but the CP lens would not come off. It would not unscrew, it just revolved as if there were no threads. Then I found it would not tighten up either, not in the least. Now it will neither come off nor seat. If anyone has had a similar experience and solved the problem I would appreciate hearing from you.

Is the CP filter made of aluminum or brass? Although more expensive, brass is less likely to give you trouble.

I carry a cheap rubber jar gripper pad (variety store or search Amazon); about $1 each. I hold the lens and fold the gripper pad over the end which makes it easy to loosen the sticky filter.
