I just bought this filter through hvstar and I'm a little concerned that its has a faint yellowish tint to it. I was under the impression that it would be totally clear. Now that i've read a little on the subject, some of the UV filters that block more of the UV (i.e., haze filters) can be a little yellowish looking. I want to use this as a protective filter for my Canon 17-85 (on a XTi). Should I have bought a clear protective filter instead? Should I just slap it on or not worry about it? Or should I just use it outside when conditions are a little harsh - like at the beach or in situations with a lot of haze?

I may try some shots with and without and see if there are any color issues. Also, i'll look for any loss in light.

Any other suggestions?

Assuming you use AWB (auto white balance) any color in a filter might not be noticed in the final result. Yes, UV's are supposed to look clear to us mere mortals, I thought.

I've seen enough evidence to go naked now. I feel liberated. I'll still use the uv in harsh conditions. Thanks.
