Just as I hate using buttons for zoom I'd hate to have to try and adjust polariser effect with a button. Turning the ring to get the desired effect is so much quicker and more accurate. However, I can see some use for similar technology for filters that are either on or off. But then again, most of those can be replicated in PP.

Zoom by wire has it's place, but not on a DSLR type camera.  Pretty much the same for CP filters.

Yes, *most* filters can be replicated in PP, but a CP filter isn't one of them.
