I recently purchased a Sigma 10-20 lens and am going to buy a Hoya Circular polarizer. Will there be any vignetting with the standard filter or would the thinner (and much more expensive) Pro1 filter be a safer bet? Has anyone got the above lens/filter combination?

The pro 1 filter is thinner but as i remember it has no front thread so you would not be able to attach an ND Grad holder.
You may want to look at the "blown skies and waterfall" thread in taking photos forum. Mike
If your still in the market for a polorizer, consider the new Hoya pro 1 D (for digital)...it has a front filter thread. is better constructed than the pro 1, ie- better knurling for easier turning and a couple other features like black rimmed glass and anti refelctive coating on the frame..it's top notch..probably about the best polorizer you can get at the moment..regards, Rob.
I picked up a second hand Hoya linear for a few pounds from my local camera dealer and it works a treat. I thought I would give it a go and as I mainly manual focus this lens I saw no problem with not having AF. In the end it works treat and the AF works. To be honest I tend to use grads these days, but its handy to have.
I have not tried using grads and the polariser together though.
