IS UV filter really necessary? with AR or without AR?

I just got my 24-105mmL for my 50D and the pictures are amazing! Do I need a UV filter for this lens? Anyone really notice difference with a UV filter and without one?

Some of the expensive ones have Anti-glare (anti-reflective) coatings and I'm not sure if I really need it.

I may also buy a polarizing filter.

Thanks for helping a newbie photographer.
