In reality many of us have these cameras for years without seeing this flare unless we deliberately test for it, can't remember a single ruined shot since my first DP in 2009. Not one.

I quite commonly take wide angle shots with the sun in the frame.

I have to avoid those images if I get a DP1M camera. Good to know.

That the DP2M and DP3M are much worse is maybe not important, or maybe it is - depending on the type of images you plan to take. I will probably not have the sun in the frame with those. Hmmm .. maybe with DP2M. But ... here it is much more important to know what happens with street lights.
