Going to Hawaii in the next couple of days and spent money on a 67mm B+W UV MRC filter for my Canon 70-200 just to keep it clean from moisture, dust, grime, whatever I encounter in Hawaii. I'd rather have the filter scratched, etc. vs my lens, which would put a damper on the trip. I usually go without a filter on my 70-200 though. I think using them in certain situations is certainly warranted.

If you are shooting scenery, change that UV for a polarizer. In fact shooting in the jungle also benefits from the polarizer to remove any water reflections from the foliage.

Yup! Will have my 77mm B+W KSM Polarizer for my 17-55mm with me as well. Thanks :)!
