Hi prabhu, I too am using NEX 6 .....I think as a rule (since I also take alot of night shots), UV is not recommended for night photography, namely because:
1. there is little or no UV rays to filter;
2. any additional piece of glass over the lens is a degree of image downgrading .....due to filter unclean, quality of the filter glass, glass multi-coating, light reflection from the filter, haziness, etc.
Here are some discussions among Flickr users on the issue of whether UV or any filter for night photography:
Best regards. ee Smile
