Slim or normal B+W Kaesemann Polarizer with 16-50mm 2.8?

I have the 16-50mm 2.8 lens and I'm looking for a polarizing filter. I expect to use the filter a lot, so I am prepared to pay for the B+W Kaesemann. I'm not sure if the normal filter will vignette the image, requiring the slim version.

Does anyone know?

I don't have B+W filters, but I put Hoya UV regular (size-wise) filter and didn't notice any vignetting even @16mm.
Originally I was concerned and bought the filter from B&H. They indicated in the specs that it's 3mm thick. In reality it turned out to be 5mm. I was prepared to send it back but after a few tries I didn't find anything above the vignetting that the lens gives without a filter.
