    You need a slim-mount filter. For APS-C (crop) sensor cameras, you will start to see vignetting around the 15-20 mm focal-length, (depending on the lens) with normal filters. Slim-mount filters are about one-half the thickness and have no front filter threads (meaning that you can't stack another filter in front of them). These cost a little bit more, but allow you to maximize the effectiveness of your wider glass.

    Most 'slim' CPL filters won't hold a lens cap either.

    True, but if you buy the B+W, it comes with a slip-on lens cap of its own! :thumbup:

    Sounds like the Nikon CPL II filters (these) are just as slim as the other "slim" filters but do hold a regular lens cap.

    I don't have any experience with these Nikon CPLs but user reviews on Adorama, B&H, Amazon etc. seem universally positive.
