A quick question for those that own the Canon EFS 10-22mm - do you use regular or "thin/wide angle" filters ?I am looking to buy this lens and already have "standard" 77mm filters, which the salesperson at the store (usually very knowledgeable) said would pose no problem, even at the wide angle of this lens.Your comments are appreciated.Tim

I have used a B&W F-Pro UV filter and Hoya HMC Super UV filter on my 10-22...didn't notice any difference in the two. Supposedly, the F-Pro is thinner which makes it more ideal for use with the 10-22...I didn't see a damn difference though.

You shouldn't see too much vignetting with only one filter.

I have the same lens, and went down the Cokin "Z" road because I wanted to use a graduated neutral density filters, and the Cokin lets you move the plend line up and down to suit your composition.

Yes, I know all about the arguments against plastic filters, but sometimes you have to make compromises to get whatyou want. And sometimes, we want strange things...
