+1 for the XS-Pro

It's also worth mentioning that B&W's slim filters don't accept any pinch type lens caps. They come with Tupperware-like caps that won't stay on. On the other hand, they do make for a fine drink coaster.

more important.. where does he work?
it´s seems he is 24/7 online here.... must be not a very time intensive job.  ;D

i wish i had that much spare time.  :(

Who knows. Except for the occasional lapse in spelling, he's a smart dude. I've seldom had reason to doubt his advice, and when he has an opinion on something I stop to make sure I'm thinking through my own correctly. Ignore his comments at your own peril, but you're not going to find better free advice anywhere else.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

For what it’s worth I use both the 24-105 and a B&W slim Polarizer for years without issue, and still have the original cap.

Totally agree...and sarcasm that is often entertaining.

Pardon my ignorance, but would using a larger filter with a a step down ring prevent vignetting?

I have excellent Google-fu, I read a lot, I read fast, and I remember almost all of what I read (and where to find it again).  It's a scientist thing.   ;)
