pentax 50-135 flare at night
Dec 7, 2012

in praactice is impossible to shoot a photo at night with the 50-.135 if there are strong light source. I have never experienced anything similar with any lens of any brand. every light source produce flare strongly visible in the photo. I'm surprised a lens so expensive and so sharp that haas such a flaw. I don't know any 70-200 lens that produce this. i have noticed this sso far i bought the lens.

the 60-250 f4 has the same problem? i love my 50-135 but really it''s unbelievable how unusable is for long exposure at night in city or everywhere is an artificial light. Not even cheap lens from 60' produce this effect.
