    Were you using "old school" linear polarizing filters? (I am not clear
    if circular polarizing filters can be "crossed" to reduce light
    There is a concern that linear filters can interfere with exposure and
    auto focus on digital cameras. Have you had experienced any exposure or
    focus problems?
