kaesemann polarizer for da21


i'm going to get that polarizer for my da21 (and fa43 and by default dfa100 and fa50) since they all share the same filter size, but i was wondering if i need to get the slim version for the da21? it's not that wide, but it is a widish angle

thanks for any advice

AFAIK, you don't need to get slim version, even for the DA15.

My 49mm B+W works fine with the DA21 and DA15.

The cheapskate I am I would always use step-up rings for my bulky filters til there is no more vignetting (full open test shots reveal this) and never shell out the extra money for the slim versions.

Steprings are cheap, but add one more fiddling job (unless you keep them on the lens permanently).

Cheers, Georg (the other)
