Interesting. I'm looking forward to reading some expert commentary on this.

Circular polarizer? No thanks.

A ND or grad might come in handy every once in a while. I wish Sigma had put in an internal filter; oh well. But I'm not going to buy a $2xx holder that holds 145mm filters.

For those few times I feel need a filter, I'll hold a gel in front of the lens.

Wuuuhh... $250 for a holder and UV filter? Much wiser to go for a 4x4 square filter system to use ND filters at that point. (Because I agree with those who say any UV filter is pointless, and a CPL on an ultra-wide lens is erratic at best!)
