I Guess UV Filters Are A 'No-No' With The Fluorine coated 1" DL Cameras?

Nikon is making a big deal about the Fluorine coating that repels dust, water, oil etc. from the lenses of the DL 18-50, 24-85 & 24-500. [The 18-50, moreover, having a Nano Crystal Coat to minimize distortion.]

Of course if you put a UV filter in front of these lenses you lose the benefit of the dust, water repelling. Yes, the lens will be fine behind the filter but the filter will not repel the dust, water etc. to the same extent.

I always slap a good quality, typically B+W, UV in front of all my lenses.

Should I stop doing this IF I get a DL?

I know that this is a topic that has been discussed ad infinitum before, BUT to me Nikon seems to have changed the 'playing field' by stressing the Fluorine (Nano) coating.

Thoughts, suggestions and experience please.

Thank you. Anura
