I've largely stopped using any protective filters unless there is a need.

Were you using the hood for your test images? I've noticed that a lot of lenses have a big difference in performance if any light is hitting the filter. While its worse for direct sun, even strong reflections can cause significant deterioration.

You're correct with your observations. Front elements and coatings are quite durable (in spite of the cautions about breathing on your lens ).
