Seriously, it is a never ending debate. My take is to only use them in high risk areas, such as blowing sand, geyser spray, stuff like that. Even at that, be sure to get a high quality filter. UV has no effect on a digital sensor like it did with film so go with one of the clear filters if you must have one. For normal photography your best protection is a lens hood, which will both protect the front end from damage as well as enhance contrast and reduce flare..

I recently uploaded my full Spring 2015 photo gallery to my website. Here's a preview of a few of the GHO pics:
You can see more owl photos from the trip, as well as the rest of my general Spring 2015 wildlife photos here.

And for "far away," you sure got some good stuff!

I have a Sigma 150-500 that has been OK at best. Like to hear your thoughts on the new Sigma.
Originally I bought the Tamron after seeing some great photos being taken with it but was not happy with the results on my Nikon 610's. I waited and waited and finally our local camera store started receiving the Sigma's. I tested a demo and was very excited with the results and finally purchased one. The Sigma dock gives you a lot of customization options which I use.
I don't think you can go wrong with either lens but I would suggest trying them both and see which one you like better. It's great to finally have a viable choice in this zoom range. Good Luck
