I am a bit confused... I have got this Kenko Pro1 Digital 67mm UV filter, and then there is one Hoya filter with exactly the same name...which is which? which one has better quality? Apart from the positive side, protecting the lens, does it affect the image quality negatively?

Tokina, Hoya, Kenko are all part of the same company. The product is the same but the name may vary from country to country. See my previous post in this thread about filters.

All fliters impact image quality. The higher quality ones affect it less. But there is a time and place for filters. When I am in the desert or going to the beach, I always have a Haze filter on. As it is a harsh environment and the added protection is a good thing. But when I am running around the cities, I leave my filters off. I never use them for night shooting. They really impact the shots on long exposures with flares.
