    If its the IS verson of the lens it will indeed fit because that lens has a 72mm filter size. Also B+W arent bad filters

    StreetShark,

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I should have mentioned that I have the IS version of the lens. Is it true that I should get the circular filter as opposed to the linear filter? Is there a better filter I should be looking at around this price?

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff

    Yes, AF systems require a circ. polarizer, not linear.

    You should really take a look at Cameta Camera's website b4 you make that purchase. I have never ordered anything from them but their website gave me a very used car salesman vibe.

    have a good one

    Thanks all for your replies.

    I have another question regarding filters. I am new to Photography and so far I have shot pictures of my family, some landscape pictures, and some macro pics. For the type of pictures I am taking thus far, is it better to get a polarized filter or a UV filter and why?

    Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff
