Just purchased my new 60D after months of debate. Got the 18-135mm kit lens.

I want to get a lens hood (Canon EW-73B). I also want a circular polarizer as well as an ultra clear glass lens.

How do you use a circular polarizer with a lens hood attached?

Don't know if they turn in unison or independently or what?
Thank you.

I know that the 17-40L allows the user to use both threads (the filter threading AND the lens hood threading) at the same time.

What do you mean by "lens hood threading" ?

You don't tell us what lens you have but that looks like a hood for a 15-85 zoom lens ?

We'll need to know what lens(es) you are using.

It's in the title of the post, the 18-135

Canon hoods attach via a set of interlocking tabs on the lens itself, they don't thread on (at least any that I've had experiance with) this keeps the petal orientation correct (assuming of course a petal hood).

Adjusting CPs typically require the hood to be removed unles you have nimble skinny fingers (I don't so I end up having to clean smudges when I try and do it)

OP,
Unless you plan on taking it into some area where there is a lot of dust or water spray- you probably don't need the UV type filter. If you get a standard round filter that uses the filter threads, like most circular polarizers- it'll probably have a knurl on the edge of the filter to allow you to turn it. It'll be tight- but you should be able to turn it while the lens hood is on.. However- you will probably need to remove the hood to remove or put on the CP.
As far as a clear or UV filter for your lens- if you are using your hood- it should be largely unnecessary.

Thank you Wayne. In a recent Outdoor Photographer filter article, Gary Hart talked about the "pain" of using a lens hood with an attached CP. He said that he would rather use his hand when there is a direct sunlight issue versus using a lens hood.

My Canon Elan II always had a CP on and I loved what I could do with it. However I was able to get some stunning shots with my Canon G9 without either a CP or hood.

If I get a lens hood, it would be a Canon hood made specifically for the 18-135 lens.
I have never owned a lens hood, therefore I am unfamiliar with how it attaches to the lens as well as how it interacts with a CP.

I surely don't want to be putting on/taking off a lens hood to adjust the CP.

Can I use the CP with a Canon EW-73B lens hood attached?

Last year on an Ansel Adams camera walk in Yosemite, just about everyone had a lens hood on their DSLR. Lowly me had my G9 (although my pics came out great) and I never asked nor paid enough attention if CP's were attached.

I want to keep my vacation photography (going to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons in June) simple. My poor wife suffers as I constantly look for the right compostion. Last thing I need is to take my hood off many times per day (she carries enough stuff already).

So do I just buy the hood, or the CP or both?

Buy the hood and the CP. you should always use the hood, and a CP is a valuable tool in the right situations. Yes, using a CP with a hood can be a pita, but I have pretty good luck just sticking my finger down the hood to turn the polarizer.
