I use a lens pen on all my lenses (including the really expensive ones)

to clean my lenses and have done for a number of years. They work well. They also work on the Anti Alasing filter that cover most sensors. (just tap the open pen a few times(you smokers and ex smokers know what I mean) to remove excess carbon))

I never use a UV cover and many pros don't either. However its your judgement call, don't sue me if you damage your lens when you could have used a $100 filter.

A $100 filter because you need one with good antireflective coatings. Cheap filters are bad! My 2 cents and YMMV.
