Typically people consider 35mm the cutoff point between standard and wide angle.
If you are using an aps-c sized crop sensor, then 24mm is more like 36mm, so that makes the lens more of a standard telephoto. You wont have to worry about vignetting from a filter if using that lens on a crop sensor because that part of the projected image will not be captured by your sensor.

In general, with these thin filters you need to make sure that your lens cap will stil fit. Some people do not like to use filters because they worry about image quality. Some tiffen filters are really bad.

Here is the most quoted filter test I have seen:

As you can see, a couple of those tiffen filters are pretty bad. 10% reduction in light when using a clear filter is no joke.

I personally think it is worth it to use a filter just because I don't like to clean my lens. I bought one of the CPL- UV mefoto combos from adorama that keeps getting advertised and the CPL has been great this summer. I would spend $14 on that instead. It appears to be out of stock at the moment but they go in and out every couple weeks.

The whole point of saying wide angle is that you won't get vignetting with wide angle lens. It's fine with any sense.
