I normally don't put filters on my lenses for many of the reasons that Kevin stated. I currently use two lenses, an AF-S Nikkor 24-120, and a Tamron 150-600 VC USD G2.

The front element of the 150-600 is at the very front of the barrel, and is a very large 92mm in diameter. I can't get past the thought that the front element is much more vulnerable than the one on the shorter lens, and I keep a UV filter on it for protection.

The 24-120 serves almost all of my rail needs, while the 150-600 is mainly for wildlife, and now Amish farm scenes, some of which I post on Flickr. I don't see any ill effects from the filter, but I don't generally use that lens for any into-the-light photos.
