'Regular' vs 'Slim' Filter...
I am considering getting a 10-22 Lens in the future. I've been reading that most people get a Slim Filter with this lens..

Are there any negative issues in getting a slim filter other than price?.

Does the regular vs slim filter effect my ability to use the hood?.

As you discovered, the slim filters are usually more expensive. Often they do not provide threads to let you attach other filters on front of them..

Those are the two of which I'm aware, but I'm not an expert...

A hood is always a problem with polarizing filters. To get the right angle the filter has to be rotated, and that is often difficult with a hood mounted. Some people use rubber, screw on hoods that rotate with the filter, but that is where the problem arises with slim filters..

Many slim filters are only threaded on the lens side, so the lens cap will not clip on. And, screw on hoods won't work either. Some slim filters are threaded on both sides: check before you buy..

Thanks Hugo for all the info!!!.

I think I'm going to wait on the purchase of the 10-22 lens and just get thenon-slim filter for my 70-200 F2.8 IS.

Now it's just an issue of brand: B + W or Hoya CP Pro1.

Don't use that as an excuse to NOT get the 10-22. You do NOT want to use a "polarizer" on that wide-angle anyway. Polarizers only work (or at least have the "max" effect at 90 degree angles to the sun. Therefore with a wide-angle it is impossible to get a "consistent" effect over the entire image - part of it will be polarized & part will NOT be..

Polarizers should only be used on at least a "normal" focal length, to telephotos. So get the non-slim CP for the 70-200; (so you can use a hood)..

AND get the 10-22; (also with a good lens hood)..

Thanks for the advice!!! I have read a lot of good feedback about the 10-22. So, it's probably not an issue of if...but when I'll be getting it.PavsterOrange County, CA - Wildlife, Architecture, & Landscape..

The Heliopan has threads which gives it enough room to allow a Canon clip-on lens cap to be used. Some others like B+W don't allow the Canon lens caps to be used...

Additionally, even a slim filter may vignette at 10mm...
