After many years of using filters I finally did some tests and came to the conclusion that one needs to test each filter with the lens it will be used with regardless of the filter quality (I have always tried to get the best available). Generally, I have found little IQ degradation but a couple of them definately made things quite a bit worse. I now rarely use a filter but always use the proper lens hood.

BTW, I always use the Zeiss cleaning kit when I clean a lens and I do not clean unless necessary.

Take the scenic route! Life is too short to do otherwise.
