Re: question about filters and IQ

A filter can only have negative effects on image quality.  Those effects may well be very small in most circumstances, and they may be quite obvious in others, but another two glass surfaces can only harm image quality.  Sometimes, in very specific cases, the protective function will actually be useful, but I never use a filter unless I have a  specific reason to do so.  And I know I'm not helping image quality while it's on the lens.
