Why a UV filter on the Shorty Forty?

It's B&W 007 Clear MRC:  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/475488-REG/B_W_66_1001698_52mm_007_Protection_Clear.html
I know its B&W, but why? The 40mm is cheap. Its like me buying a B&W filter for a 50mm 1.8.

I bought 40shorty for $95 from Crutchfield, with some reward points. The filter cost me almost $40. I doesn't make sense for someone else, but for me is worth it. I like to keep my toys in shiny condition ;)

Off Topic: Even though the value of my 1992 Acura NSX is only 1/5 of what Im driving now, but I still have the cover on it and wash it every two weeks or so. This is my 1st sport car. I might put $30K just to have this car rebuilt from head to toes, that includes: 500horsepower eng directly from Japan, custom chassis, wheels, seats, stereo etc....It doesn't make sense for others. It's perfect for me. ;D ;D ;D

Very nice bit of kit.. Enjoy :)

Thanks Alex....I'll take a day off from work tomorrow to test drive this "little monster". I'll post some pictures. Stay tune ;)

My wife took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese over the weekend with my RX1. Since then, I haven't seen my RX1 back yet >:(

Here are some pictures that she took. Also, others were taken by her friend(s) with my RX1: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/fPRlYszx/1/5948895
