Re: I use UV filters more-or-less all the time.

I belong to the minority who always use filters for protection. I have UV filters almost permanently fitted to all my lenses as a protection. I find it easier to clean the filter than the front element of the lens (although it is better to keep it clean in the first place).

I'm not sure I understand this argument.  Whether you're cleaning the filter or the front element, you're still cleaning something.  Lens elements are actually tougher than glass filters and will stand up to multiple cleanings better.
