Pair of Neewer Filter wrenches, rubber-coated, arrived today.
While hand holding the extended lens firmly, used a single wrench to easily remove the misaligned filter on my Panasonic fz1000 camera.
No damage on the filter threads that easily screwed back on to the camera lens.
Gave it all a good clean before putting it back.

It is worth pointing out that the filter might not have been misaligned. Sometimes the aluminium material used for the filter ring binds in the fitting on the camera and is a known phenomenon. If you want to avoid it happening again, you could try a filter made with brass which seems to be the only reliable way to prevent it. The sole ones of which I know are made by B+W which are reassuringly expensive. There will be no quality issues. A few years ago I picked up some secondhand from Ffordes at a reasonable price and they currently have something in stock which might be suitable.
