Given the price of a Hoya filter, would it not be wise to protect that
with a cheap Russian UV filter?

I raised this suggestion in response to James' original comment.
"Think about it," quipped Alastair. "Keeping stacking up those filters
and you'll increase the bulk and weight of the lens, and eventually
cause vignetting. I think we've invented the poor man's Noctilux!"
