Oh, yes I have had an occasion where the filter has saved the front lens element.

How do you know? Did you afterwards remove the filter to repeat the accident without a filter?

Or did you just see the filter glass shatter and jump to the conclusion that the shattering of the filter glass somehow had protected the lens?

So, Allan, do you use filters or not?
