^ It's clear, but it still reduces the amount of light hitting the sensor. One of the reasons I don't use them a bunch; I don't have lenses that are A) expensive enough, or B) fast enough.

Good question! I'm not very good at explaining but here read this
The Filter Flare Factor

It explains "flare" and "ghosting effect" when using UV filters.

Also I don't use uv filters at all because they degrade image quality and reduces the light entering the sensor, but then again the use of a UV filter is subjective.
