Thought I would share this (external link). Its a very short article with a couple of pics showing the difference in good and cheap glass.

I know the filter decision is specific to each person. Personally, I use them to give a little protection against me scratching /dinging my lenses. I use good quality ones though. When I first started out, I used a cheap one from Quantaray and quickly bought a better one. I now call them Quantacrap.... This is why.

NO filter would be even better when photographing a back-lit subject.
