    But hoods don't protect the lens element.

    in what sense? drop a lens with a hood and the hood absorbs the impact, without damaging the front element...drop a lens with jus filter, the cracked filter may scratch the element behind it...

    hood can also prevent flare

    i was at the beach with my class some time ago and even with a 70-200 saltwater managed to splash onto the filter.

    i seldom use hood as it cant seem to fit in my bag. with my 12-24 i use my free hand instead.

    I mean in a sense of impact directly in the direction of the front of the lens.

    do u really mean impact? filters r more to protect against smudges and scratches. u'll need kevlar to protect against impact.

    Impact as in light impact from small objects that will scratch the surface of the glass. A filter is always more practical in this sense and only need to replace it if damaged, rather than damaging the front lens element which will cost a whole lot more than replacing the filter.

    not true

    if you are using a filter and you 'bang' the front of your lens, or the side front against something which i have done once, the filter breaks which is ok, it only costs me like 20 bucks, but the lens was fine, so in some respect it can protect against large frontal impacts

    Isn't that using HN-3? Anyway, if you noticed the reflection it is inverted. so it has to do with the internal reflections and like everyone else mention it is probably the filter.
