Protective UV filters have their time and place, when i am out hoofing it in weather for a great shot, i have a filter on. When i am in a controlled environment like my studio, i never use a filter.
It is not either/or
A time and place.
I did have CPS send me the 100-400mm to check out for ten days, and took it out for 3-4 good outdoor shoots with a 77mm B+W MRC filter on the whole time, and was non plussed with the results, so did not purchase the lens. If any lens should cry out for a protective filter, this beast should be on the list. I would hesitate to say any lens over 300mm should also be on the list.
+1 on not using cheap filters, B+W MRC being the bare minimum in my book.
