I recently switched from an uncoated Tiffen to a coated B&W UV filter for protection on a 16-50mm Tokina lens.

The filter is: B&W 77 010 UV-Haze 1x MRC

And guess what? with direct light streaming into the lens I'm still getting green ghosting from the B&W filter. I was under the assumption that B&W filters are so superior that this should not happen. Perhaps it's because this particular lens design makes it hard to prevent ghosting...I don't know. Anyone have similar experience with B&W filters?
