Thanks for that link, Actorlife.
..and thanks to NHL for info on construction differences.
I am leaning toward the B+W 77mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer Glass Filter Slim, but no one seems to stock it... Anyone know of a good place to get it, or an equivalent filter?

Thanks again!

Thanks, Johng

Unfortunately, that site is horribly formatted and hard to navigate.
The link you entered is not for the SLIM filter. The slim one (on another page) shows delivery 5-6 weeks from order and won't even allow for ordering online. It also costs $40 more than B&H.

Maybe I'll just go for the "regular", non-slim version at B&H. Anyone know if I'm going to get vignette with a 17-40mm on a 20D.

If you ever go to a full frame camera I would be worried but its more like a 25-66mm lens on the 20D.

Not that anyone would do it, but I prefer the 'regular' since you can't stack the 'thin' filters on top of one another. I find this useful for storage, by getting rid of the large filter cases... ie the 'thin' ones usually don't have front thread

On the other hand the thin B+W comes with a 'tupperware' style plastic cap that'll help you hold and screw the filter in as well as protect the lens since the lens cap wouldn't fit anymore... again because of the absence the front thread :?
