Well I finally took the bite and bought the Sigma 10-20mm EX DG lens for my new K100D. It should come in next week and I am looking for a nice UV filter for the lens. When I bought the lens at adorama.com it suggested that I buy some filter for it. They suggested the Tiffen UV filter designed for wide angle lens. It was the slim profile one so I won't have vintage at the wide angle. In a way it sounded right but will having a taller filter create vintage? I never used a slim filter before but the filter that I have right now for my other lens don't seem to be that tall.

So the real question is, is there really a need for me to buy a "slim" filter instead of just a regular one?

I think the word you are looking for is vignette. Yes you want a slim filter if you can't try it first as that lens could easily vignette with a wider filter.

The easiest thing to do is go to a camera store and try filters on your lens to see if you get vignetting at full wide.

Actually I bought this same lens the other month and I have a Hoya UV filter and it works perfectly, no vignetting at all

Mine is just 67mm Hoya hmc uv filter for my Zenitar 16mm



The Polarizer is used as a filter adapter only
