They say you can't use a filter with hood on it ???

Why, i have a very thin CPL filter which causes no vignetting !!!

Are you talking about this quote:

"The front element is slightly convex, 40 mm in diameter. It is surrounded by an inscription with the name and the parameters of the lens with a non-rotating filter thread, 55 mm in diameter. Unfortunately the same filter thread is also used to attach a small hood which, in turn, serves also as a cap adapter ring. When you screw the filter in, you can use neither a hood nor a cap in order to e.g. protect the lens and the filter. I have to say such a solution is rather ill-considered…"

Can you use your CPL filter with the hood? Attaching the filter, then the hood, and then the lens cap is what you are saying is possible, and you only need to remove the lens cap to then shoot? What is the CPL and how thick is it?

Thank you

You're right, i'm using a Cokin Pure Harmonie filter.
