I just put one on my 15-85 and did some test shots outside. While I'm looking through the viewfinder should I be able to definitively tell where the filter "is". I had my camera pointed at the sky and was rotating but could not tell where my polarization was. It has about 2/3 of the edge of the filter grooved so I assume that means something but what.

It appears from looking at the pics on the computer that the smooth portion is the CPL areas. Is that right?

You should notice the effects of the polarizer in the viewfinder as you rotate the filter. Of course, if the sun is directly behind you there won't a lot, if any, polarization to see. For best results, you need to be positioned 90-degrees to the sun (as you are looking through the VF, the sun needs to be in line with either of your shoulders). It also has other uses other than shooting the sky/clouds.

Also, a tip: when looking through the VF, rotate the CPL in the counterclockwise direction...this will prevent it from accidentally unscrewing and falling to the ground (or in the water if you happen to near it).
