I bought UV filters for all of my lenses when I first got DSLRs. Shortly afterwards I did some testing with and without, and much preferred the images without. No I never use UV filters, but always use a hood. Only exception is for macro, and of course you can't use a hood with the GND filter kit on the front of lens.

I'm very careful with the glass, keep it regularly cleaned free of grit and marks. The hood offers protection, better contrast, and protection from flares just out of frame.
