    do you think it is best to leave your CP filters attached to your lens all the time and just turn the filter on or off as needed or to leave it off and put it on only when you intend to use it?

    Thanks for your input,

    well if you rotate it to use the filter then you should be able to rotate it to turn the filter so it isnt polarized right?

    Yes you turn the filter for desired effect but it still is darking the image when its on. So you will be losing some light with it always on.
