UV: don't bother, honestly; get lens hoods if you're worried about protection.

Polarizer: get the best you can afford, I got a B+W Kaeseman and thought the price was outrageous, particularly since the large sizes cost even more and I needed a 77mm; but the results can be amazing. Check if the front element on your lenses rotates as it autofocuses, as the effect polarizers provide depends on their position in relation to the sun, and hence how you rotate them on the lens; if your lens rotates as it autofocuses that might be a bit of a hassle.
