    I am buying the Canon 28-135 lens and am looking for a filter to protect it.
    I had a friend says do not buy a UV filter as it will darken the images. I
    have HOYA UV's for my other lenses. He says I should buy a
    sunlight/daylight filter. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You should place the filter on something white, like a sheet of paper. A B&W
    UV filter will show pale yellow. A 1A skylight intended for colour
    photography or digital will show pale pink. I don't know if they have
    developed something different in the meanwhile (since I had a SLR...).
