I just bought one, so I hope it doesn't come out too soon :^) The flare you're probably not going to able to do anything about because of the bulbous front element, but it woud be nice. The lens is fabuous in shade, almost unusable with the sun in or near the frame. I would far rather have a much cheaper and smaller FX f3.5 like the DX 10-24, which is completely flare free, but everyone keeps clamoring for f stops.

Mine is about 1 year old, and I might be doing something wrong, but I am yet to face the situation in which the flare will ruin my shot. Of course, I have to look for the best angle, but that is true with almost any UWA lens that I tried.

Maybe Nikon did improve newer releases, but I doubt so. 

It is a good idea to use baseball cap or newspaper to create some shade if needed, even if in following images, I didn't have to do so. (With a sun in the frame it won't help anyway...)



And with a sun close to the frame
