Circular Polerizer and Step-up Ring (How to prevent from getting stuck?)
5 months ago

I have a B+W 72mm polarizer filter.

I have tried various brands as well as plastic and metal step up and rings and the problem is always the same, the two always get stuck.  My latest is a 62 to 72 step up ring.  I finally got them apart with the really cold to really hot method.

What a PITA!

Is there any anti-seize grease or something that can be applied or do I have deal with this all the time.

NOTE; a filter wrench DOES NOT always work
