Hi Roy. I have this lens and I'm impressed by the images it produces, if you buy the lens I would recommend buying a filter just to keep in place over the glass. 82mm is a lot of glass and it could so easily get damaged, so I bought a Hoya Digital Protector and it stays screwed in place on the end of the lens. It would be an expensive mistake to leave all that glass unprotected so it's something to consider. Great lens!. All the best.
