meh I only use a CPL when it is needed on mine I just don't think it is worth spending a lot on a slim filter for a half decent lens and the only time I would want a protective filter is when I shoot storm clouds in the summer

does it reduce IQ and image quality when you use a filter? maybe im just too iffy about damaging the front element of the lens. :(

lol well on my Sigma it doesn't matter if I use a filter or not the IQ would still be quite ****ty :S The problem is that it produces images with an area that is quite soft even at F/8. From what I have heard you don't really need a very expensive slim filter for that lens but not a too cheap one either. One of those Hoya multi-coated filters should be good enough.

Super HMC filters are very nice. I've got one of those on my Sigma 10-20 =)

The Super HMC filters actually have better light transmission than the HD filters, the HD filters are just tough as nails =) (no pun intended)

I dont disagree that the HD filters might protect better but that test conducted fair, the non HD had a larger diameter than the HD thus easier to break
