    You can attach both, and it will be perfectly fine.
    Most people leave a UV filter on there full time to protect their lens face. As for what it does (that I have seen using it), I really couldnt tell you. Well, other then increase lens flare in certain lighting conditions.

    I hope you bought a good filter. Just about all of them take away from the image quality and flare like crazy. Use a hood. Make sure the filter is multi coated. GL
