B+W UV Filters - Do they work?

I will be heading to the Smoky Mountains next weekend for some fall foliage shots and have been looking at the B+W UV Filters to help with possible haze. Brand aside, do UV filters actually help with protecting against haze? I know some use these filters as lens protection from day one.

I have heard different arguments on using the filters for protection; some say if you are going to buy nice glass, why waste more money covering up that expensive glass. Others say, why spend $2K on a lens and not protect it?

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
