Experience with filters on the DA 15mm?

I just ordered the 15mm and 70mm Limiteds

I was thinking about getting a filter kit to use on these but was curious if I'd have vignetting issues on the 15mm. The photozone review notes that vignetting is an issue on this lens until F/8 and was wondering how much a thicker filter like a polarizer will worsen this.

Not too worried about the 70mm as I understand vignetting is less of an issue on this lens and I'd be less likely to put filters on it anyways.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Great buy JamieP, congrats. says

"The lens can be used with normal thickness (as opposed to slim) polarizers without vignetting, making for a far more economical solution than the slimline 77mm filters required with most wideangle zooms."

Consider a Hoya Pro-1 HMC filter. It is a slimline filter and as a bonus the multi-coating is a close match to Pentax's own SMC.
