... well, it's a yes from me ...

... I seem to be the distinct minority here, but you can imagine my relief when I removed my B&W Filter and found that - yes - it was only the filter that was cracked and not my precious 16 - 50! This happened during one of those once in a lifetime trips to Hawaii as I was climbing out of lava tunnel and the camera (as well as my knee) hit the asphalt lens first.  Yes I should have had the lens cap on, and I did not have hood on (which probably would have also saved the lens, but was shooting in low light) ... but the B&W lives on my lens (i.e. on every one of them).  Am neither arguing nor denying the image degradation issue, I'm just responding directly to your question from another point of view.
