Standard vs Slim CPL's

Not open for further replies.
I've done a bit of reading on CPL's and have decided to get one before the Australian summer comes.

I was just wondering what the difference is (if any) between the standard and slim CPL's are.

I'm planning on getting a B+W but don't know whether the extra $$$ is worth paying for a thin one.

It will be used on my 24-70 with 30D body, so it isn't on something too wide. I also will be mounting it on top of my UV filter which is a B+W standard thickness UV.

What do you guys and girls think???

The silm filters, as the name suggests have a thinner profile. You don't really need that on the 24-70 and I certainly don't see the need to stack filters unless you are going for special effects.
