No kidding, you really don't mess around. I think you could still sell that one on ebay, "for parts - already disassembled". I hope the story (whether it's the truth or not) is suitably exciting?... do tell.
On ebay it'd go as "mint, worked last time I used it".

I'm a little schizophrenic with this issue. I have good quality UV's for all my glass as well as several Hoya CPL's, a Cokin P system with CPL, ND's and Singh Ray Grad ND's.

In the bag the UV's are all mounted. I find they keep the front glass much cleaner and dust free than a cap does. Plus caps fall off too easily sometimes. So a little double protection makes me more comfortable there.

If the shooting conditions require extra protection that I think the hood can't provide (blowing sand, salt, rain etc) I'll leave the UV on with the hood as well. Otherwise I try to avoid using them most of the time. I don't think they degrade the IQ much but there is always some issue with reflections etc in some situations.

You'd often see a UV with cap attached in my shirt pocket when shooting.

That'll buff right out...

I use not filters except on the rare occasion I get that landscape feeling. Then a polarizer.
