    Anybody using a polarizer on this lens? I'm thinking about investing a chunk of change in a B+W CP for it, but am concerned about vignetting at (and near) the wide end. Would welcome all comments / suggestions from anyone with experience using filters on this lens.

    I got the cheapest cp I could find on Amazon to use disposably for a beach vacation. I didn't get any vignetting whatsoever. (I was not using any other filters, however.). I suspect you'll be fine whatever you pick.

    I picked up a 58mm Sigma DG version for my MKI kit lens. I have a step down ring for it. It seems to work just fine, other than dealing with the MKI front lens rotates when focusing. That is a PITA.
