Flare, filters and caps

Without permission but simply copied and pasted here from a post by Ron; this is what he replied about flare in a recent thread ( http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1036&message=18000940 )

The flare you see in your images is due to the angle of the sun. Many times I can get rid of the flare by just a very slight change in composition. I have also been able to get rid of it by shielding with my hand. You have to be careful using your hand though because the lens is such a wide angle that sometimes the hand will be seen in the image. As a last resort you can try adding a very small lens hood in such a manner that you can also use filters with the zenitar if you desire. You can see the posts that myself and frank have made about this at the two links below.
