I am looking to get a CPL for my UWA 10-22 lens. Should I only be looking at slim mount CPL or will regular be ok? Which CPL would you recommend that offers the best bang for the buck that will work great with my 10-22?

I was looking at these so far but please post a link with your recommendation.

I'm a B+W user myself so I'm a bit biased at the quality but I used a Hoya HMC CPL for my Sigma 10-20 and it worked great! The only one I wouldn't suggest is the Sigma unless you're on a tight budget.

How important is multi-coated vs regular for CPL? Also do I need the slim mount?

I don't use/need a slim mount as it doesn't effect me so I would say that it's not a priority and the HMC Hoya's are the only Hoya filters I would consider using but I'm very particular about my filters.

Just want to confirm, on the wide end (10mm) I won't have a problem with a regular mount CPL?

I didn't on my Sigma but I would ask the people who own this in the lens sample thread just to make sure. I stacked 2 regular filters (ND grad and CPL) and both were non slim and it didn't cause any vignetting on the wide end.

Take your camera and lens to a shop. Mount the regular CPL on it so that it doesn't polarize the light at all. Then shoot a white wall in the shop with flash.

Do the same with the slim. I suspect you'll see vignetting with the standard, esp at 10mm. At that fisheye focal length, you're bound to see vignetting even with the slim. With my 16-35, even the hood produces some vignetting.

If you're going to use any CPL, you should get the slim for that fisheye lens. The multicoated ones are much better, but I will let others explain the reasons why.

Vignetting will depend on the filter brand. I can say for sure that the B+W F-Pro CPL (non-slim) does not vignette on the 10-22 at 10mm (there are also various threads on this if you were to search the forum). Will another brand vignette? Can't say for sure as I only use B+W and Singh-Ray polarizers. But the B+W will not cause vignetting.

Multicoating is a mixed bag. TBH, I think too much emphasis is placed on it. For example, Singh-Ray does not use multicoating on the their polarizers, and they're regarded as some of the best filters available. Not to mention B+W (ND filters), Lee (circular polarizer) and others also do not use multicoating on their filters. IMO, unless you're shooting directly into the sun with your polarizer, the lack of multicoating is not a big deal (your lens is coated anyway).

I just bought a 77mm Hoya CL-PIR Thin from here (external link) for my EF-S 10-22mm. No vinetting in corners and nice effect, the shot below was taken with filter in place. The filter has thread on both sides so lens cap still works. :)

I like my B+W Kaeseman (not the slim version)

Sigma 10-20 @ 10mm with CPL in place, no vignetting issues for me.

I love my B+W Kaeseman slim version, and it comes with a lens cap.
