2) No filters and bulbous front element is annoying, particularly if you're use to keeping a filter on your front elements to prevent damage. I'd love to be able to use a CPL with the lens but the truth is I don't do that very much anyway. (There are DIY solutions involving Cokin filters and even dedicated filter holders, but they're clunky and expensive - I have better things to spend my photo dollars on)

How would you use a CPL on a ultra-wide-angle anyway? The non-uniform incident light across that wide angle of view usually gives you decidedly inconsistent results across the frame. Certainly for typical landscapes and such.

I have no personal experience with an ultrawide and CPL but if you go to flickr you'll see that there are people who've had decent results with CPL and Sigma 8-16. It probably requires extra care and experience/experimentation and won't work in every situation....but you can say the same for using an ultrawide in the first place.
