Do you guys use a UV filter on your macro lenses ? other than just for protection of the lens surface itself..

Well, I use UV filters on all my lenses for protection.  But the filter is most useful on my MP-E 65mm, where the working distance is so minuscule that I'm often shoving the front of the lens right against what I'm trying to shoot (e.g. an insect on a plant).

Insect juices do wonders for flare reduction. :P
