Yes, I agree. It can cause flare, vignetting, affect exposure, etc. However, for the most part, they are OK and unless you scrutinize the image, you will not be able to notice any difference in terms of IQ. Of course some filters are better than others but I never found them to be that intrusive. All of my lenses have an UV filter mounted on them 100% of the time. The protection they add to the glass is well worth it.

Where? If nothing else, it's the other way around (you can see that particularly on the scarecrow shots). Remember, the first image is with filter ON.

The filter messed with exposed in the darker area, so those areas became darker. But if you look at the finer details. The none filter one have more define patterns

We must have a monitor issue. No matter how much I analyze these images, I can't possibly see more details in the 2nd shots.

Here are two more...you can clearly see more thread detail on the 1st image (look at the red nose).

there is clearly a exposure difference I do not contest that. And shooting manual with a bit shorter exposure will give the none filter shot less washout that it has right now. Like the filter you put in with a ND effect. But the details still look more crisp on the not filter shot on my monitor.

I want to update this thread. Today i went to a SonyStyle store and tried the a33 model. it didn't do that slow screen evf at all. as i panned around, there was the usual blurry you expect from an evf/lcd. but it was smooth. I'm going to check more when i have some extra time. something is fishy. maybe the SS. maybe the AF. maybe i don't know.
