Pentax DA 15mm -and use of filters

What is the experience of using filters on the 15mm limited lens? I am considering buying the lens but would like to be clear on these points.
from photos of the lens it appears that the lens hood does not fully retract.
The lens has a 49mm filter thread.
Some specific questions.
does the lens vignet when using screw in filters , - can you use a protector filter plus a polariser without vignetting?
can you use a square filter system such as LEE and how do you attach the holder.
I wondered if you used one screw-in filter would this then enable the LEE adaptor to clear the protruding lens hood.?
any comments on vignetting with square filter systems with this lens?

How does the performance of this lens compare with the pentax 12-24mm lens?

thank you
