Polarizer filters work well with lenses that have filter threads.

But if a lens requires a slip-on filter adapter, it there a practical way to use a polarizer?

back in the day they made Polarizer filters that were slip-on filter!!
they don't come up on ebay very offen!!
now some adapters were made that go on #7 & #8 slip-on filter
that let you use 52mm filters

I got a VI to 55mm adapter & a 55mm Polarizer filters!!!!
so I went back to look at his ebay things and found other
adapters cost more then buying the Item number: 140553809660
that I got!!!!
like #140573168333 is a Series 6 to 55mm VI>55mm Step Adapter Ring
like I got & its $24.99 Buy It Now !!
AND the #140553809660 that I got for $22.99 Buy It Now !! AND it has
both the adapter & the filter!!!
SO I thank that I got a great buy AS I can use other 55mm filter THE only that would have been better IS if it had been a 52mm!! as I have more 52mm filters then 55mm filters

I found them on eBay in the beginning of July. I bought the series VI and series VII circular polarizer filters. Then I bought a series 7 ND 8 filter from the same seller. Then I bought a lens vise from the same seller. He gave me a shipping break for the four items and shipped them in one package.

Thanks,
Steve

I recently purchased a series VI slip on filter holder to fit the lens I did not have one for from a seller on ebay that sells the holder and retainer rings separate. I purchased a dual thread retainer ring to go with it. Now I can use it to retain any of the series VI filters I have on any of my lens AND attach my series VI Vivitar Polarizer that screws into a series VI holder without having to remove the retainer or the other filter in the stack.
