| p.1 #1 · Circular polarizer tight |
Hey folks - wondering if anyone else has encountered this situation.
I recently bought a new B&W circular polarizer for my Canon 5DII. It's a 77mm model, which fits either of my main lenses. So, I tried this out locally and it worked just fine.
Then, we took a big trip to Russia. Once there, the ring was incredibly tight to turn. In fact, I couldn't turn it with the lens hood on, because just gripping by my fingertips wouldn't give me enough strength.
What should I do? What do you think happened? I'm imagining it's been damaged a bit so it's not quite circular, although I have no memory of anything happening to it. Do you think I should try a little machine oil?
any help would be appreciated!
