How frequently do you guys use the CPL, ND, UV filters? are they really worth buying?

I have a CPL on my 16-85VR permanently on, plus the hood. I mostly take outdoor photos and if I don't need the CPL, I remove it as needed. I have clear protective filters on all my other lenses, plus the hoods. I own some ND but have not used any yet.

You will find people who believe some filters are not necessary and you will find people like me, who prefer to protect the lens with filters and hoods.

If you are going to buy filters, you can get the biggest size according to what lenses you currently own (and which lenses you intend to purchase in the future), and then use step-down rings to be able to use the one filter with all your other lenses.  Most of my filters are either 67 or 77.
