The only lens with protection UV filter I have is the Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM. It is a very expensive and high quality filter from Hoya somwhat called HD or so (have to check) and did cost me around 70 €. In fact in most cases I do not Need any filter. But I have it now and it does not degrade image quality, besides rare flares and / or ghostings. Especially in night long shutter speed shots or if sun is in the corner. Good side is, image is sharp and it does not affect color or shutter speed.
