i did some searching in the forums but still can't quite grasp the idea of stacking

i have the common phayee adapter + Hoya super hmc pro1 62mm uv filter setup and i am confused about how it's possible to screw anything on top of the Hoya because mine doesn't have any outside threads. help?

That filter is one of the few that do not have front threads,most do.

IMHO..it is not the best Idea to stack filters or to add a lens on top of a filter, you are better off without stacking athough the benefit is minimal.

I don't understand what you guys are talking about???

I have the Hoya super hmc pro 1 62mm and it has front internal threads (on the inside of the front rim, not outside)...I screw in my Nikon 6Tor polarizer on it all the time.

I am sorry you are correct .. but I was sure they did not.

Maybe it was an old model that had no threads.. or maybe I was just wrong again.
