So do you want a good or cheap one?

Don't use a UV filter.

If you don't want to spend much money, then don't buy a UV filter.

They are not necessary, do nothing to improve your photographs and a cheap one will generally degrade the image quality and make your shots look bad. There are frequent threads on here from people wondering why they can't take sharp shots, then they get told to take the cheap filter off and suddenly their shots are no longer soft.

A good quality filter should have no ill effect on the image except under very specific circumstances, but they don't come cheap.

We can't recommend a good, cheap filter as no such animal exists. You have the option of good but expensive, or cheap and crappy. Or don't use one at all, which is a very popular option but causes arguments between those who think it protects the lens and those who don't.

If you're going to get one, that's a good one.

Don't get one, put the money toward a body or lens :)

If you feel the need for a protective filter at least pony up the money for a good one. Why would you want to slap a cheap piece of glass on the front of a thousand dollar lens?

I suggest you have a look at the protective filter sticky in the lens forum.

This forum have seen at least 100 threads like this. Maybe even a thousand threads.

A few of them are based on a completely different requirements specification - so have a need for a completely different, and more specific, answer.

But most of them are the generic - what UV filter to buy. Which means that the answers given in these threads are quite similar to the answers you may get in your own, very personal, thread. So with a quick visit to the "search" function, you can get thousands of answers within a couple of seconds.

Do you have a hood for this new lens?

That will always give you a decent level of barrier protection, AND it will go a long way towards improving image quality by potentially reducing glare and flare. Reduce those, and saturation, contrast and apparent sharpness will always improve.

Invest in a high quality Circular Polarizer Filter. Under the appropriate circumstances it will vastly improve your images.

I use a Hoya EVO protector filter and a hood. No loss of image quality that I can detect, the lens I use it on gives amazing results.

B+W MRC UV Haze filters on all my lenses from day one. Never had an issue other than an always clean front element and probably better resale value since every lens Ive ever sold the buyer was very pleased to hear I kept the UV filter on since the lens was first pulled out of the box.
