Lens flare.... I want it! :)
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:28:06 AM »
What is the best lens to choose for crazy, out-of-this-world, over-the-top, almost obstructive flare! :)

I hear the FL 55 1.2 gets some nice flare?

I know i could fake it in PS, but i like to get the best i can in in camera...  any opinions/advice?

The Nikon 14-24mm lens reaches out and grabs flare from almost anywhere.

I have the FL 55 1.2. It does get some nice flare, and if you use it at 1.2, the image becomes quite soft and hazy

How about a cheap / bad filter on any lens without a hood?

I did a general check of my photo's: the most flare I get from the Sigma 20 mm (nice halo's) and Samyang 14mm at f/2.8 (big burst that covers half the frame). Neither of these flares may be sufficient for you though. The 100-400L gets ugly purple/green crosses when car lights shine directly into it on the race track. It must be said I'm generally impressed with the resistance to flare of most of my lenses.

The original EF 14mm f/2.8L is another.
