        I have filters on most of my lenses.  Personally I care neither UV nor 
Skylight, but many of them are UV.  Canon has blank glass and that's in my EF 

        Coatings can be a problem in cleaning up.  I have one Nikon 77mm UV 
that's got coatings messed up.  Maybe I should razor blade to peel it off.
