Default UV Filter--E-PL1

I bought a Tiffen UV filter.....can it adversely impact pictures?

I did search this, but couldn't find anything.

....it depends on with whom one has the discussion and my opinion is that what little impact there may be is offset with knowing the lens is protected from incidental scratching. I've replaced some UV filters because of scratches but no lenses.

I use UV filters (Tiffen, Cokin, SunPak, nothing expensive) on all my lenses. I don't pay attention to what the naysayers say but then I don't have the really expensive lenses either, for what I have I see no impact.
