Cheap filters affect IQ. Premium filters are best.

I didn't think UV filter would make a noticeable difference in IQ until I took a few test shots, the difference was very noticeable. More contrast and brighter without the filter (with identical camera/lens settings). Now, I have ditched the filter and bought a cheap lens hood for protection.

Which leads me to believe you were using a cheap or poorly made filter.  If you use premium filters, you should not be able to easily discern the difference in IQ in all but very extreme cases.

If you ever try a filter and can immediately tell a difference in IQ, don't buy that filter because it's a rat.
