Re: Lens Elements vs. UV filters

Every lens element has a specific purpose forming an image, insuring all relevant wavelengths focus at the same point, distortion controlled etc. A UV filter does none of that.

Perfectly true, but irrelevant.  All air/glass surfaces produce reflections which contribute to flare and glare.  That happens with lens elements as well as filters.
