Since you've all been very helpful I thought I'd ask the additional question regarding a UV filter on the lens to help protect the front element

Does anyone actively use one for this? And if so do you find it affects IQ a lot, especially at the long end?

Thanks again

I use B&W clear filter all the time, no problems.

On the fragility......I did have early problem with the mounting foot, had to do a little self repair.  Use the lens heavily for 3 plus years, no other problem, lens mount ok, just have to deal with the "stiff zoom."
