    I just purchased a 4 filter kit from Neewer. The filters are threaded and I cannot see how to attach them to the P3P lens. Does the P3P come with a UV filter attached that has to be removed to install other filters?

    Yes, you need to unscrew the UV filter. Do it with as little pressure as possible. Otherwise, it'll seem impossible to remove.

    Make sure you're turning it to the left. If it does not budge, try wrapping a rubber band around it or wrap some other kind of rubber around it so you can grip it.

    I found it best to have the P3 upside down and wear latex gloves. It will come off easier than you think ... Extremely light grip!

    I raped a small rubber band around the outside and it came off easy.
