Re: E-420

Well I've on all of my lenses an UV-filter. Mainly for protection. Although I always use my hoods. But then again, I "work" mainly outdoors, in a harsh environment. I'm namely an aircraft spotter and thus standing a lot at airports/Air Bases.
This means often a lot of blown up dirt, etc. Especially at those places where planes turn on taxi ways and near the runways.
So, for me it's easier to clean my UV-filter and protect my glass and if necessarily replace the filter, then replace the whole lens. Which is much more expensive then replacing an UV-filter. Even when using a lens hood.
