Scot:

That would be extremely cool if possible. One big advantage would be the elimination of getting a polarizer for EVERY lens diameter. You could also add polarization to lenses that cant easily achieve it - fisheye and mirror lenses come to mind.

Hmm...could regular Neutral Density be done this way too? Built in ND and Polarizing - that would be seriously useful.

Light loss is a big hurdle and the SLT's already take a hit from that direction. Still, it's good to dream. The best advances start with an idea.
