I apologize if this topic/observation has already been discussed in this forum, but I have recently realized that my B+W 62mm Kaesemann XS-Pro Circular Polarizer MRC Nano Filter contacts the surface of my m.zuiko 12-40 2.8 lens. Hopefully, I have not already damaged the lens.

I wanted to let others know this as I don't (for obvious reasons) recommend purchasing this filter for this lens. I would appreciate it if anyone can suggest an alternate circular polarizer for this lens that is of excellent quality but does not contact the front element.

Thanks in advance.


Update: The trick of using a Cokin extension ring to separate the filter and lens produces vignetting. So it's not a perfect solution.
