Edit to my "foggy" UV filter image earlier in the thread. Turns out the UV had a very slight "haze" on it that I didn't see, It was an older filter from an old lens that had been stored for a few years in the plastic case, and I guess it developed a slight haze, which caused the loss of contrast! I just slapped it on as I was going out. Arghh. But I do think I will invest in a better, coated UV for the 23mm. It is just too good a lens to skimp on the UV.

You can probably remove the haze with a lenspen.  In any case, I'd not put an uncoated filter in front of a superb piece of glass.  My personal choice is the Nikon NC filter.  It is colorless and we don't need UV filter anymore because the sensor filters out UV for us automatically.
