    I posted this a couple of days ago in rec.photo.digital.slr-systems
    but haven't received any responses, so I thought I'd try here. Is
    Canon's drop-in PL-C filter the only reasonable circular polarizing
    for a Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS? I see that a drop-in threaded adapter
    is available that would hold my existing 52mm Hoya super multi-coated
    PL-C but it seems to me that this arrangement would make it next to
    impossible to adjust the polarization angle without lots of trial and
    error; that is, drop it in, check, take it our, adjust, insert again,
    repeat. Is this correct? I do not yet have the lens but want to
    know if the drop-in Canon PL-C is the best one to order with the
    lens. TIA

    Well you COULD special order one for the front...

    Yes, but the good news is you only need one. Most of the time. It is
    cheap as a fraction of the lens price compared to a POL-C for a kit
    lens.
