Personally I have no issues with using Polarised filters for landscape photography. Also, if you don't have one and you are shooting in harsh light, tune down your Exposure Value a bit.

Full agree with Switchback on this matter. I stopped using UV filters and exclusively use polarized filters on all my glass, including with my 300 mm f2.8. Takes a little getting used to but then really gives you some great satisfaction and great results.
I use a D80 and two D90's.
