I use a 52mm "Hoya Pro- Digital MC PL-C" polarizer on my 9-18mm. In some markets this is now called a "Kenko Pro-Digital etc."

It stated to be :

"Low Profile Frame. Ultra thin filter frame to help avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses are also designed to hold a lens cap".

Amazon UK price it at £18.39 which seems good value to me but no doubt cheaper in the US.

It works fine and I think a thinnish filter may be necessary at 9mm.
Hope this helps,

I use the same filter, works fine indeed except for the lens cap which barely holds on to the filter thread since it is so narrow.
