I agree with you. Why destroy a nice lens by adding a piece of cheap glass in front of it?

The reflex of protecting a lens with a filter made sense when lenses were expensive and ment to last a lifetime. Todays cameras are disposable and none of us will be using our actual one in three years because better technology is around the corner and it will be affordable.

Besides, a scratch on the front element of the lens will most likely have no effect on your photo because it will be completely out of focus.
