"RE: Flare resistant landscape lenses"

Hi Steve,

I'm running out of posting space. The sun came out briefly today and there are a few leaves of interest still hanging on. I took two 7-frame HDR series with each of a 28mm f/2 AIS and 35mm f/1.4 AFS. The 28mm has the SIC coatings, the 35mm the newer Nikon Nano coatings.

I posted the results here. http://snappix.smugmug.com/Photography/Lens-Flare. The first frame of each series is a CS5 HDR rendering with my edits. I then applied the 35mm edits to the 28mm HDR to be somewhat consistent.

I tried the same sequence with my 24-120mm f/4 AFS (Nano) lens but it was a disaster. I do know that flare can be a problem with that lens wide open. I had used the lens in the woods the night before and I usually clean everything after use, but had a meeting and forgot. There were a few dust flecks on the front element and just about everything that could go wrong did.

Let me know what you think.

Roger
It's still, ISO, aperture and shutter-speed, right?
