There is only one real reason to buy a UV filter: if you're trudging through the woods to shoot landscapes, it will save that front element on your expensive lens. But you have a lens cap and lens hood, right?

I use a clear filters for one reason.

It is cheaper to replace a filter than it is a lens and I have a chipped 77mm from my sigma 70-200 2.8 that proves my theory quite well.

Certainly. But that's what I was saying earlier. That's what lens caps and hoods are for. I supposed it depends upon the seriousness of the shot.

It also depends on what someone is shooting, for me:

When I am shooting landscapes with a bright sky I will use combinations of my ND filters.

When I am shooting "Street" I would rather have my camera ready to go at a moments notice, so no cap and just a protection filter.
