I do agree that lenses have some strong glass, but have still seen some pros bust a lens or 2 on a minor wall hit or sudden drop out of a bag.

I for one, haven't busted a lens ... thankfully, but have scratched one of nikon lenses once at a shoot. (Crazy club scenes) Anyways, it costed me a couple of hundred to fix it.

So, I go for the UV filter.

On degrading the quality, it also depends on the filter glass. There isn't one set price on UV filters or any other filter out there, because the different companies that make them use different glass, rendering different results. I for one use Tiffen and Hoya Filters. And haven't had any issues, but that feeling is different for everyone.

But like Lyonsroar stated, you really just have to go out there and do the research for yourself and be your own judge.

You don't want to wait for the 5D Mk III, that's rumored to come out??

That way you can buy the 5D Mk II cheaper if it does.

That's happening with the Nikon D3s at the moment ... something I am looking at since the D4 came out. Or I am going to wait for the rumored D800 rolling down the mix.

The 5D Mk III announcement has already been pushed back two years. I'm not going to hold my breath. Also, from what I've seen, the announcement of the III won't affect the prices of the II, unfortunately. Not for a while, at least.
