I have shot with the 16-28 now for two years and I love it...**** the flare haters that talk **** on this lens..Any Idiot with an above average IQ can compensate for any type of flair in the field, that is unless your IQ is somewhat below average...
I guess I'm dum, then. So dum that I cant even spell dum (although I can
spell flare properly for the intended context, and not use it interchangeably with its homophone).
See, the thing is, while it's easy to 'compensate for flare' by changing your composition, what if I want
the light source in my image? What if that light source is what gives the image it's unique flair (as in, stylishness and originality), but I want the flair without the flare? How can I compensate? Please, educate and enlighten us with your erudite exposition...
BTW, for those who are interested, here's a flare comparison
of the Canon 17-40L vs the Tokina 16-28.
