    If I recall, the quality of the filter made a difference on my Zeiss 28-85 zoom for Contax. I bought a multi-coated filter and the lens exhibited less flare compared to single or non coated filters.

    Well, the filter used is only one piece of glass, but it is generally the FIRST piece of glass if it is mounted in front of the lens. I tend to go for MC filters.

    I typically buy coated filters, but I have also used non-coated filters and been happy with the result.

    I usually don't get too worried about image degradation. Actually, the entire reason I am using filters in the first place IS to effect the image. I never use a filter to protect the lens, instead I want the color adjustment or the polarizing effect. If not, I see no reason to use it. So, as long as the filter glass is quality glass to start with, I figure I am getting what I want.
