Now we see through a glass, darkly...

Some of us don't think it is good to put any kind of unnecessary "protective" filter on an extraordinary lens unless there's an actual environmental reason, such as wind-blown sand or salt-water spray or small bits of hot metal flying around in an industrial environment, that compels one to do so. To each their own. YMMV.Also, I like to protect my expensive lenses from dust/prints/scratches with the best clear filter you can get, and I prefer B+W XS Pro Nano ones. I also get that type in C-Polarizers if I want one of them. I don't think it's good to put an "ordinary / freebie" filter on a really extraordinary lens, but to each their own.
