Sigma 15-30 EX and Polarizer Filter - Photography

Has anyone every actually tried using a slim polarizer with this lens to see if it vignettes? I am thinking about getting this lens to replace my Canon 20-35. 20mm just is not wide enough for me with the EOS D10 body, but I cannot give up the use of a polarizing filter. Thanks, Alan...

    Default Sigma 15-30 EX and Polarizer Filter

    Has anyone every actually tried using a slim polarizer with this lens to see
    if it vignettes?

    I am thinking about getting this lens to replace my Canon 20-35. 20mm just
    is not wide enough for me with the EOS D10 body, but I cannot give up the
    use of a polarizing filter.

    Thanks,

    Alan

    Don't forget that the field of view of this lens on a 10D is similar
    to that of a 22-45mm lens used on a 35mm film camera.

    A polariser is likely to be perfectly usable from the middle to upper
    range of focal lengths on the 10D so your (and others') warnings are
    likely to be misplaced.

    Well actually, no. You are correct that at longer lengths, a polarizer
    IS usable with this lens, but at wider lengths, there will definitely be
    uneven polarization effects. So we're both right, except that part
    where you said my warning was misplaced :)
