Is the non-lens filter contingent willing to chip in to pay the OP the cost of repair if the front element of the lens is damaged by not using a filter? I didn't think so.
Wow, what a remarkably inappropriate post! We told him what we do, in some cases including compelling reasons for same, so that he, a big boy, can make up his own mind. As you know, despite your snarky post.
I use good quality multi-coated filters in most lighting situations - including in a dark room using strobes. When shooting at night - dark with bright lights in the background, the filter comes off to avoid ghosting. I've never had a photo rejected for publication because a filter was used.
Good for you.
As with many "debates," there are two sides to this one. Each person has to choose, and live with the consequences. I have protective filters on most of my lenses, but I chose not to have one with this lens, for a variety of reasons.
I've never had a photo rejected for publication because I didn't use a protective filter. Whatever that means (not much, actually, just as your statement didn't mean much).
