Put the polarizer in a drawer, the UV in the trash.

Especially if you're using that 24 on full frame. Polarizers do weird things on wide lenses. Maybe bring it out if you need to kill a reflection in a very specific circumstance.

Putting a UV on is just silly. You've got a lens with a technologically wild front element coating (to deal effectively with wide-angle specific issues) and you're going to throw single-coated garbage glass in front of it? Seriously?

Even a high-end filter with good but traditional multi-coating in front of the 24's specialized coating is an insult.
