Yes I know it is the age old question being bought up again so this is my own finding and conclusion.

I have had the chance this evening to check the filters UV -clear etc under a CN-160 light and got quite a supprise. on my most used lenses the filters fitted had quite a bit of contamination on them. Some were smeared with finger prints etc whilst others had minute scratches/chips dirt particles.
Now I am not saying one should fit filters or not that is entirely up to a photographer. However having seen what can happen to a filter all I can say I am glad I fitted them and not have to send expensive lenses back for repair.

My recommendation is do look at your lens/filter under a bright light and make up ones own mind
