UV Filter to be left on lens at all times for protection?
Dec 16, 2010

I have a new Canon 60d with EF-S 18-200mm lens. This is my first dSLR. I also got the following UV filter for this lens:

Someone mentioned to me that I should keep this filter on the lens at all times to protect the lens and not just for bright daylight shooting. Is this a good suggestion? Will the filter not hurt IQ in conditions outside bright daylight?

Appreciate any input on this...
