Should I install a small filter UV Panasonic LX3?

I posted this in the chambers as well, but I want the views artists. I want to keep the covenant of the camera, but may protect the lens a little better. The Pany LX3 has no protective lens cover for the wonderful Leica lens. I found some UV filters that are small and barely above the lens attached. Here's an example: A person who sells http://acmaxx.net/installation_lens.html on ebay, if you a search for ACmaxx and LX3. Http: / / cgi.ebay.com / ACmaxx-LENS-ARMOR-UV-FILTER-Leica-D-Lux-4-Panasonic-LX3_W0QQitemZ230444929001QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCamera_Filters? hash = Any item35a7968fe9 thoughts? Panasonic makes a lens adapter that can have a UV filter, but it is time enough for the zoom can be extended into it, so it adds bulk to the camera.

Personally, I would not. Here's why: You have a wonderful Leica lens. Why do you want to spoil it by placing a piece of the party known glass quality session in front of it? I would invest in a filter holder if available from the manufacturer. It will give you the option using more filters, polarizers, etc, and you will have more choice about what the quality of the filter you use. Go with Heliopan or B + W is.
