Fully aware of the pros/cons, I usually keep UV filters on my lenses... mostly just to provide an extra physical barrier.

So I almost cursed my own cautiousness the other day... as my D7000 (in well-padded holster) swung on my shoulder and quite gently came to rest against the car door, I heard a "K'CHK" sound I wasn't expecting.

Opened up the holster, to find a pile of sparkly dust where my UV filter had once been

Getting every tiny fragment of glass from the lens has been a challenge, and annoyingly there are now some tiny, tiny scratches on the front element. Fortunately, it's only a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, so not a tragedy if I have to replace it.

Not sure if this was a warning against using cheap filters (it was a Kenko) or just a freak weakness in the glass, or just weird bad luck
