Gee I must be dum...you should be a teacher... I also guess by your extreme terms of endearment you didn’t bother to realize how I was using flair in my context.....   I use the flair as a style in my shooting when it suits best...I don’t have any issues at all with how it "flares"..

Just because you like flare, doesn't mean you should call others dum(b) .   Most photographers don't like the loss of a good image due to extreme flare, but it can legitimately be used to draw attention to a subject. Post some images demonstrating your use of flare.
 
The lens is well known for its flare, which can prevent taking a good image.  If you are on the side of a canyon, and the sun is in the corner of your image, what is your workaround?  It might just be better to use a lens that controls flare, rather than trying to move Grand Canyon.

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Flare is not always a bad thing it just depends on what look yr going for...so many people talk bad about flare it just depends on how its used to add flair in your photographs...   wow! I did it again...Love it..

That would be fine. But what you said was that anyone who doesn't want flare in their picture, who is going for a different 'look', is a low grade moron.  Way to be a jerk.

Hello,

 I am a newbie to this forum. I would like to have your suggestions for my next lens to use for my Canon 6D. I already have a 24-105L IS, 50mm 1.4, and a 100mm 2.8 Macro lens. I am looking for a wide angle lens for my 1 week next trip to Utah ( Bryce/Zion National Park and of course to the Grand Cayon ). My budget is ~ $1000. I can sell my current lens to  get more $$$ for the big wide lens. Please let me know.
 Thank you

If you're searching for a lens just for this trip, I'd definitely go for a rent, as someone else already suggested.
Canon 14/2,8 or 16-35/2,8. I like the first one much more, but obviously a zoom is more handy.

Having gone from a 10-22mm on a crop, to a 6D + 16-35, then bought a 24-70 2.8, I'm starting to realise that I use the 16-35 very little and when I do it's generally at 16mm - I've bought a Fisheye Optic for my Lensbaby this weekend, so pondering chopping the 16-35mm in for a 14mm prime.  Personally had I got the 24-70mm first, I'd be going straight for the Canon 14mm 2.8 because when you want wide, you always seem to go as wide as possible.
Regards, Haydn

I second that... i always used the short end on ultrawide-lenses, because this is the reason I choosed the lense at those very moments ;). Maybe the 8-15 would be a difference, because the 15mm is really usefull and the 8mm gives a planetview. But I guess a 14mm prime makes more sense than a Zoom in this area. Just my taste.

RENT a, or more than "a" uwa lens for your trip.  I've rented every lens since my rebel XTi kit years ago before purchasing and this has given much guidance as it allows me to get familiar with it, compare lenses, and largely avoid remorse.  Just sayin'...
6D, 7D,50D, 17-55IS, 24-105L, 70-200 Fl2.8L IS, 135L, tokina 16-28, 150-500 & a buffet more, 580 EXII, 430 EXII, AB 800's

I'm going to suggest something else...  Tokina 17mm AF Pro f/3.5....  can get it off of ebay for fairly cheep and it is meant to be really nice, though i have never used it myself! :) You could probably sell it for the same price afterwards too if you so desired! :)

Good luck and have fun with whatever you buy/rent! :)

I used it on an APS-C body and borders were quite soft WO, while CA was noticeable. I guess that on a 6D this flaws could translate in a disappointing IQ.

So, you are smart enough to compensate for any type of flair in your photos.

flair \ˈfler\  noun : stylishness and originality

com·pen·sate \ˈkäm-pən-ˌsāt\  intransitive verb : to offset an error, defect, or undesired effect

So, you're saying that flair, meaning a distinctive elegance or style in your shooting, is an error, defect, or undesired effect, but you're smart enough to be able to offset that flair by making your photos lack style and interest.  Now I understand what you meant.  Thanks for clarifying.
it was fortunate that by the time I read this I had already finished my coffee so the keyboard remained intact  ;D
