Do you protect your Zeiss glass with filters like B+W Clear, Hoya HD2 etc?

Hello!

Since I just got my second Zeiss lens (16-35mm F4) which came with a B+W UV-Haze filter, I have been thinking that maybe getting a Clear one (I want to avoid any degradation of IQ) for my FE 55mm as well. I know the lens is rather small on the 55 compared to the 16-35mm but they are still expensive lenses at least for me so I was wondering if you guys are protecting yours too.
Prior to this time, I NEVER cared or wanted anything in front of my lenses but my previous lenses were not nearly as expensive of course.

Currently I got 3 choices in mind:

Hoya 49mm HD2 Protector Filter

Zeiss 49mm Carl Zeiss T* UV Filter

B+W 49mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter

Regards!
