I'm planning on buying the Canon 24-70mm L f2.8 lens as my everyday lens for my 7D. Need some advice as to whether I should use a UV filter (and if so which one) or not?

I have filters on my other lenses, more to protect the lens, but none of my other lenses are as good quality.

So will the filter reduce the quality of my images? Or is it worth it to protect the element?

Its difficult to answer you will have a very good lens and you are putting a another piece of glass in front of it, I know what you mean about protecting it but unless the filter was the same quality then you will devalue the lens.

Yes, that's my dilemma, I'm concerned about damaging the front element, but then don't want to reduce IQ on such a good lens. Any other views?
