There seems be two schools of thought re using protection or UV filters to protect the lens. Yes do use them and No don't use them as they degrade the image. Just use a lens hood instead.

So who is right?

Both.

I'd use them on any lens that is expensive enough you won't tolerate a scratch on, and definitely any macro lenses.
