Wholeheartedly agree there Mike. I often wonder why it is that I see many photographers not using a lens hood on their gear. Though I agree that replacing a UV filter can often be far cheaper than having a new front element replaced, using the lens hood significantly reduces the likelihood of damaging the front element.

I do tend to use my hoods all the time, and I don't have UV or skylight filters on all of my lenses.
