I've used circular polarizing filters in the past, but my new camera and lenses have hoods on the lens. With the hood on I can hardly turn the filter with out touch the glass of the filter. Is there an easier way?

I usually remove the hood when using a CP filter.

You could always adjust the polarizing filter, then put on the lens hood. I know that's what I have to do with my 70-200 if I want to use the hood.

remove the hood when using filters and shield the lens from the sun with your hand or body (easier with the camera on a tripod which it should be if using a polariser with its 2 stop light loss)

What kind of hood are you using? I had this same problem with my Nikons and the hoods that came with the lens. I purchased a collapsible rubber lens hood which I can attach to the polarizer. That way when I rotate the polarizer rhe hood rotates with it. In fact I rotate the polarizer by grabing the hood.
