As the title asks, when you are shooting outdoors are you using anything to protect that glass since you can screw on a filter.

I see Breakthrough has a X4 UV for $200. Dropping this much on a lens has my stomach sick but after several rentals, its became a great tool for my business.

I use the lens hood supplied and find this to be sufficient.

Plus I figured I spent $1900 AU on the on the lens,why add another bit of protective glass that 'may arguably' diminish image quality in some form.. Saying this at times even wide open at f1.4 I find the 105mm so Sharp it almost needs a little less sharpness

Brilliant lens
