I didn't at first, but did soon afterwards. I opted for the more expensive water repellent filter from Sigma. Back when I purchased there really wasn't as much available as there is now. But still, after getting hosed down with champagne at a wedding, I'm totally digging the WR filter. Liquid really does roll off it.

I'm in Southern New Mexico. Most of my outdoor portraiture involves various types of thorns sharp as razors and as long as six inches in length. I just watched a "Tog" out at White Sands National Monument drag his 70-200 FL through the Mesquite and damage his front element. It happens. Regardless of how careful you are.
