Wise choice!

... and I thought only the Europeans are more elitist: http://www.tipa.com/awa_detail.lasso...&-KeyValue=113


BTW if anyone follow the development of the Sigma lenses, the HSM's never had to re-chip. It's only on certain older non-ultrasonic ones made before the year 2000, which are slower in AF and need a timing adjustment (which were done for free anyway).

You may want to remove it in cases of strong backlighting

Why should strong backlight have any effect whatsoever?

in the 30 years of shooting i have never needed to remove the UV filter except to clean it off and 3x to replace it after impact destruction.

sjms- you must be press. You only partially quoted me to make your point!

As I also said earlier,I recently purchased B&W MRC UV filters for both of my lenses. I tested them for possible effects in backlit situations with my EOS 3they worked perfectly with the full 35mm format, so digitally they should be great as well. They were not cheap but they do work very well and cause no visible image problems.

I've also tried mounting a Canon-brand Sharp-cut L-39 some time back and had horrible results in situations where the sun was in the frame compared to shooting without the filter mounted, so don't just putany cheapbrandUV filter and expect to get as good a result.

That is definitely one example of where the makers own product was inferior.
