Do the coatings on the Nikkor Lenses do anything for eliminating UV light or anything else like that?

How much is a UV or Skylight filter needed except for protection if you are using a professional or consumer level Nikkor lense?

Another question is what differences do you all see with different high quality filter brands: Nikon, B&W, Heliopan, Hoya, Tifen, Singh-Ray with Nikkor lenses?

Is it true that certain filter brands work better with different Lense manufacturers: Nikon w Nikkor, Hoya with Tokina,...?

Thanks in advance for any experience,
