i appreciate if some one advise me whether i should pick some UV Filters for my Nikkor 18-55VR, 50mm 1.8D and 70-300 VR lenses while shooting. i heard the "KAI" guy saying on DRTV that UV filters are good for Film cams, for sensors of DSLRs its not required. Pl advise.

Further i am also wondering if i should have some plain glass as a protection for lens mirror, if not the UV filter.

As mentioned many times on this thread and many others.  A protective filter is not always necessary.

In most cases there is no technical or logical reason to have a protective filter.  That said, I still have them on all my lenses.  I'm an old guy going back to the old film days when there was a reason. Emotional I can't break away from always using them.  Makes no sense.  I do use B+W UV MRC 77mm filters.
