    Hi Omid,

    Welcome to the CiC forums from me.

    A quick google found this

    The obvious risk with an expensive lens like this is scratching the large front element when cleaning.

    It doesn't look like a traditional screw-on filter fits, due to the extreme curvature of front element, thus requiring a filter holder.
    This looks like it might cause more accidents than it saves, so I'd think carefully before going that way for general photography*, or wait and see if anyone lese here has one, or a similar lens, for their advice.

    * of course, if you need a specific filter, like a Graduated ND, that's a different matter, but they're not cheap.

    Hope that helps,

    Have a guess :)

    I have a similar issue with my Canon EF14mm - just no way to fit a protective filter (as much as I love them). For me, it's a bit like acrobatics without a safety net (or so I've heard) - personally I'm just VERY careful using that lens; the cap is the last thing I take off, and the first thing I put back on.

    I saw the thing and it doesnt seem to be practical for protection especially in the mountains!
    I guess i must be super careful with the precious!
