    anything extra in front of your lens will degrade the quality of your image

    for an extreme example.

    take a piece of glass and look through it
    now take another piece of glass and out it together with the first piece of glass

    now look through it again, any difference?

    taking a picture from an open window is always better than from behind a closed window.
