Keep the hood - Lose the filter

Why buy an expensive lens and put a cheap piece of glass in front of it. You will get better protection by using a lens hood and won't suffer a loss of image quality.

Unless you are taking pictures in areas of blowing sand or salt spray, UV filters are pretty much a scam.
The first camera bag you buy is always too small
