RanL: A very nice review. Would have been nicer if it said something about the (alleged) flare-blockage / internal reflections / "black bandit" issue that's been so extensively debated on the forums (here and elsewhere) lately. It would have been nice to get a word on this from an authoritative and reliable source.Right now that (possible) issue is the only thing holding me back from ordering this camera (I find myself shooting backlit scenes quite often).
Dude.. did you read the topic? Did you see my post? The fact that you can´t replicate doen´t indicate the problem doesn´t exist. I use nikon for 12 years. You comment is the one trolling those photographers who demand real assistence from the company they trust.
To replicate, you gotta heve the lightsource in a especifc angle with the sensor. It happens with any lens and the flare has a "blocked" caracter. Is not continous like normal lens flare.
I got a picture and a description in this post. See the "castle" with the blocked flare. Is a picture a took on a trip to barcelona.
I have one with this problem. It sucks...
