Please have a look on the pictures below. They are taken within a minute from each other.
I learned that the lens was flaring when the sun was close to the edge of the picture, or just outside the picture. I was amazed to learn that direct into the sun works fine as you can see, and of course with my back to sun.
So my questions to you are:
- Is this normal behaviour for this lens? I don't have the problem with any of my old lenses.
- Why on earth can i shoot directly into the sun with such a good result, when it gets really horrible when i have the sun at the edge of picture?
