    Ok so we are heading out to Vegas for a week coming up in mid june. I am going to hit up all the canyons while i am out there. I really should get a polarizing filter before then right? any other filters i should look at for this trip?

    I inquired the other day about getting a polarizer for my Sigma 10-20 and was advised against it. Do you agree?

    Yes. A polarizer and a wide angle lens don't work properly together at all. You get a very blotchy sky.

    Have fun!

    Don't forget the lens hood. Wide angle + sun even off to the side a nice amount = unwanted lens flare. Pick your time of day carefully for best results.

    B+W has a slim polarizer that is recommended for wide angle lenses. I got it to use with my Sigma 10-20 and no vingetting, no blotchy sky, so far so good.

    Like Polock I am heading west in a week and will be shooting the Grand Canyon and southern Utah (landscape city). This is clearly an opportunity for a super wide angle lens. If cpf is absolutely necessary it would seem someone would make one for a wide angle lens.

    Do not expect miracles from the filter. Heat haze is very heavy at high altitudes in the summer. IMO is going to shown up even with the filter.
