    I have a cp on my nikkor f/1.8 50mm and it works great, problem is I can't get it off. I must have stripped the thread maybe? I've taken it off pleanty of times so I now how to take it off since the filter free floats but I can't get the ring to budge at all. I even tried using my leather man and holding onto the grips but nothing.

    Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want to buy another.

    try those strap wrenches.. the rubber strap with the handle... they should do well to hold both the lens body and the filter.

    how the hell did you get it on there so tight? make sure youre gripping the filter and not the lense. I was doing this one time trying my damndest to get a filter off when i realized i was also grabbing the lense with the filter.

    mine gets stuck all the time... I either use the side of the sole of my shoe, or I use one of those lid grip pads.. you know the big rubber circles
