Filter Quick Release System/Question about filters

I am thinking about buying, a clear B+W filter, for my X-E1. Is it really worth the extra money?

Heliopan is on even ground with B&W and maybe a notch better.

Here are the filters I'd suggest: All clear and not the UV versions.

You have to read the details carefully past if the filter is multicoated or not. Some have a slim profile that is good but may also not have front threads. The downside to that is you can not attach the lens cap or stack a filter for an additional effect

B+W Clear MRC 007M Filter

B+W XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter

B+W Clear MRC 007M Extra Wide Filter

Heliopan protection filter (I use these filters when possible over B&W)
