Dont use UV filters on any lens.
I use a UV filter, hood and damp towel when I shoot on North Shore beaches during big wave season (winter). After about 30 minutes my hair is stiff from salt mist and my sun glasses are useless until I rinse off in a beach shower. After the shoot I wipe down the camera and lens, remove the UV filter and rinse off it in the kitchen sink, padding dry with a micro fiber cloth. After a season of shooting I often need to toss the filter as it's too scratched to use. When I first started shooting on beaches I ruined the front element of a zoom trying to remove salt spray.
