UV filters are the most commonly used filters, they often provide better quality pictures, however that is not the reason why most photographers purchase these filters. These filters are used primarily to protect the lenses. Scratches on the lens surface are extremely annoying and sometimes visible in the photo. In order to reduce the chance of damaging the lens you can screw a filter in front of the lens. You would rather replace a filter instead of a lens. A UV filter can remain permanent on the lens because there is almost no light loss.
