I always wondered about that statement, when combined with the big, meniscus "filter" on the front that you can take off or leave without any impact other than reducing some lens flare. But the optically flat filter is somehow relevant.

I leave it in because one is supposed to have a filter to prevent damage to the rear element of the lens.
