Hi All, Quick question concerning the use of Cokin filters & Canon lenses:- When the lens focuses it turns so if you have a Cokin filter attached it will also turn, so you can guess the question. HOW DO I STOP IT TURNING?

... Buy a lens with internal focus (IF), the front element will then not rotate!
It's a real pain to use with a polarizer as well
