Lens Hood or UV Filter?


New to Mu-43

Hi guys!

I am about to order the mZD 14-150mm and before I buy it, I want to get something to protect the lens while at the same time tossing the lens cap in my box as it is too annoying to keep taking and putting it back on every use. I am using a 40.5 B+W clear mrc filter on my kit lens but I was wondering for the 14-150mm would a lens hood be better for it? What exactly are the advantages/disadvantages between a filter and a lens hood in terms of protection?

Thanks for all the reply. :smile:
