The only time that I don't use a Uv filter is underwater and in a controlled environment, like a studio shoot. Any time you work outdoors there is always the possibility of foreign orbjects impacting your lens. The filter is cheap insurance. Uv filters have saved me on many occasions.
I still remember the first save.
I was shooting the Grand Prix of Monaco when a piece of rubber came off a tire. The piece cracked the filter. I simply replaced it with one off an unused lens and kept shooting.
