Welcome to Pentax forums. To answer your question, there are folks who always protect their lens with a UV filter. There are others who don't. If I am in blowing sand, or dirt, sea spray, etc. then a filter is a good idea. Otherwise I use lens hoods and they seem to do the job of protecting the lens from scratches for me.
