B+W MRC

If you're gonna put a skylight filter on, I'd go with the B+W MRC. They're expensive, but they're probably the best filter out there.

FWIW, one good reason to use a skylight filter is if you're concerned about resale. Would you rather buy a used lens that had a protected front element or one that didn't?
