    Yeah, they add a little tint, usually warming an image. But if you use automatic white balance, it will correct for the difference in tint automatically, so there's no difference to using an UV filter then.

    I use a skylight filter to protect one of my lenses, but really, no need for a comparison. The theory is just too simple. It's a piece of glass with a slightly warm tone. If your camera is on auto WB, it will correct for it so you will see no difference. If it is not on auto WB, the resulting photo will be slightly warmer - nothing that can't be corrected in post.
