Hi

I found the price of good filters for the 50-500 very expensive so as I only use the lens in good weather or in a hide due to the fact that it is not sealed I gave the filter a miss.
On all my other lenses I use Hoya pro 1 filters apart from of course the 7-14.

I do the very same thing, if only to offer some protection to the front element.

I've had a rubber lens hood ripped off my OM and put a deep scratch in the Skylight filter, so while expensive, they can prove to be a good investment in protecting the lens
