Is there a problem putting a pol. after a wide angle converter?

I'm searching for a polarizer.

I won't spend money on a circular one, because from my research only SLRs with beamsplitters lose auto-focus with linear ones.

I'm planning on getting a B+W with Multi-resistant coating:

My question is, will there be a problem if I place it between my WA converter and the camera lens?

And I use a FX7, so If any V1/FX7 owners have something to say about polarizers, or linear polarizers causing problems please speak up.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know any of the details, but I think anything you put between the WA adapter and the main lens will change the distance between the two and I think this has to affect the functioning of the combined lens - and probably not in a good way.

And rotating it would be awkward too!

Anyway, since I posted I began thinking of a better solution....
And decided to go with Cokin P filters.

It will fit both my bare camera and the WA adapter.

Thanks for the answer.
