I just got a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens and want to get a skylight filter to protect it. Any recommendations? 1A multicoated? Is there one brand or model that's better than others?

I look forward to your advice.

Thanks!

Regardless of whether or not you get a filter, to protect the lens (and improve the image quality) you should get a lens hood.  I use hoods, and I only use filters if I want an effect (Circular Polarizer) or in conditions where the front element is likely to get affected by something (yellowstone is a good example, as would be an area with blowing sand like a beach or desert in the wind).
