    I did some research, the UV filter is actually quite weak and cannot provide protection from e.g drops/knocks on the filter thread or filter lens.
    Best to use hood as well >.<

    I am going to buy some B+W UV Filters. Do they have any different models or only one model for the UV filter?
    Is there any price guide to refer to? I don't wanna get chopped when I go to orient photo D:

    YMMY....

    Some people like it, some people don't. Some people buy strong UV filters, some people go cheap. Doesn't mean it doesn't work. UV protects more than just knocks... water splashes, champagne spray, sand in the wind.. etc..

    Are they really all good? If you think so, then good on you.

    For me, there are some B+W filters I will not even use if given to me free.

    It is a personal thing I guess.

    Is it safe to say that B+W slim version = XS-Pro version?

    58mm MRC UV-Haze - ($71 CP)
    52mm MRC UV-Haze - ($62 CP)
    49mm MRC UV-Haze - ($69 CP)

    I am going to buy this 3(all 3 should be f-pro version), they should be good and won't affect image quality right?
    Can't find reviews online, all search results lead to online stores.

    All UV filter affects image quality. The difference is how much it affects.

    Of course there are reviews. This one is posted in the guide if you actually read through it carefully...
