Spending the money on a B+W filter to protect a $199 lens seems a little off to me. The front element of the Sigma is so small that, even if you did need to replace it after a catastrophe, it'd likely be a pretty cheap fix.

I don't usually use filters on my $1000+ lenses, let alone my Sigmas. Then again, I don't keep the plastic on my couches, either.

p.s. hoya filters seem to perform as good or better than the more expensive competition.
