Just got this filter for my 24-70 f2.8L II.
It's actually my first CP filter. I've tried it out briefly and it certainly does what it's supposed to. Love it.
The only thing I wanted to ask people who have this particular filter is if when turning the outer ring do you occasionally get a slight 'shooshing' sound like it's slightly rubbing every now and again on the turn? It's still rotates really nice and smooth when it does it though which is good.

my filter do the same.

You might need a silver marker and do some test shots at 24, 35, 50 and 70mm. This will help you spending less time finding the sweet spot when you on the field.

I've had this filter for a few years and have used it quite a bit.  It's the best CPL I've owned by far and if it doesn't make that noise now, but it might have before I broke it in.  As long as it rotates smoothly through 360 degrees, it's probably fine.  I have had issues with other CPLs seizing up or separating and learned two things.  Cheap(er) CPLs suck, and don't try to fix them yourself.
CPS Score: 111 points, those 0 and 1 point items really add up

Oh it feels very smooth when rotating through the whole turn :)
It does seem to be getting even better with use as you say.
Really brings out the colours and enables you to get better exposure balance on the land part of the image when including a bright sky. Definitely will benefit my travel shots.
