I am looking for a polarizing filter for my Nikon Z6 with Z 24 - 70 mm f / 4. The lens now has a Mentter EX-PRO + MRC UV 72 mm.

I have already read a lot on the internet about the different types and brands. I also sometimes read that some filters are difficult to remove?

I am considering a B + W Circular Polarizing HTC MRC Nano XS-Pro Digital 72, but I also see filters from Hoya and Mentter. I also read about vignetting.

What is your experience and what do you advise?

See this lensrentals blog post:

And another question: can I rotate the polarizing filter on top of the UV filter, or should it always be removed before using a polarizing filter?

I remove them, especially if it's a wide-angle lens, as two filters (or even thick polarizers) can cause vignetting.
