Make sure the filter is multicoated else you can get reflections from lights.

Generally speaking the best protection is a hood, not a filter. A hood aborbs shock, a filter transfers shock. But a filter is useful in foul weather. I use a protective filter once or twice year at most. I use a hood 99% of the time
