Default Nikon 14-24 circular polarizer?

Well, I ordered this extraordinary lens, not thinking of the bulbous glass front end which prohibits adding screw-on filters.
I know there are a few clamp-on filter holders but can't seem to locate a circular polarizer.
Does anyone know of or recommend a kit to hold the polarizer and/or can you recommend a polarizer that will work on this beast?
Thanks!

Polarizers are not recommended on ultra-wide lenses such as the 14-24mm for two reasons: Vignetting (the filter rim shows in the image) and the sky goes uneven (intensification of the blue sky depends on the angle of the sun).

I have the same lens and it is really a pain not to have the posibility to use a ND or P Filter on it.

There are some options like the Lee Filters or the Fotodiox Pro.

The vignetting that appears when using a polarizing filter on an ultrawide lens is more than just a result of the filter rim. By it's nature, a polarizing filter reduces the transmission of off-angle light, and thus. when used with wide angle and ultrawide angle lenses, vignettes.

Using a CPL on the Nikon 14-24/2.8, especially on a 'Full Frame' body, will create severe vignetting, over and above the vignetting that already comes from using the 14-24/2.8 on a 'Full Frame' body.
