    I'm trying to get a polarizer for this lens but I've noticed when zoomed all the way out I get slight vignetting.

    I know this is a popular lens so I'm hoping someone can recommend either getting a thin CPL or verifying that it won't make a big difference and a regular CPL will work fine.

    Thanks

    Recently purchased this lens, along with a Promaster circular polarizer. I haven't used it much, but from what I'm seeing here the filter has no undesirable effect. But I do see what you mean by the vignetting.. in the viewfinder it looks to be that way, but once shot the pictures turn out fine.

    I'd say go for it.

    I guess the polarizer is too big, see about getting a shallower one.

    All I have is a thin polarizer and that one definitely works fine with this lens.

    You could get a polariser designed for a larger lens along with a short stepup ring.

    Or you could just zoom to 18mm :p
