I've heard other reasons. Don't think it's anything to do with flare. Pretty sure they'd know what the flare characteristics were when they did the ray tracings. I think we're talking them fine-tuning the ability to manufacture it to Zeiss quality standards consistently but that's just me. Can't say anyone out here knows for sure.

Wish it wasn't delayed; this was a lens I was really excited about...

Do you see any new test samples with the exception of the first testers ? If the issue was scaling manufacturing we would have seen more testers or new test images from a limited priduction. There is nothing like great images and pentup demand to creat lots of willing buyers. On the contrast, it just takes couple of images that may show flaws by early testers to dry up enthusiasm. My guess is zeiss pulled out the samples and are making some design changes. That being said, it might be a good idea to pre-order as the design change, etc. might push the price up a bit
