I have a friend IRL who filtered all his lenses, "protector" filter broke while lens was in the bag with the lens cap on (the 85L), scratched the front element, which was replaced for 40,000yen.

I have never heard of a lens being "scratched" with a lens cap on and no filter , so there you go...

Just another story...as I wrote.
