Yes. But I’d say 9/10 times you’re never going to notice the filter on there in the first place.
    10/10 times. With barely anyone ever, ever noticing any differences (especially if you use a high-quality UV or clear filter) and online compression in general, it would be very foolish not to have a filter over an expensive lens.

    Hollywood has stacked 2-3-4 filters in front of their $50K lenses on their 2K-ish resolution cameras for a decade and no one blinked.

    A UV filter on your modern 4K-6K-8K camera in front of a photography lens will be OKAY.

    Pretty much the only time one will need to come off for me is if it's gotten dirty and I'm shooting into something bright and stopped down for some purposeful flare, like the sun for scenics or the like.
