Re: Again, where are those optical experts when you need them?

I agree. The flare produced by the X100 is truly ugly and objectionable. I get results like this all the time when out shooting street at night. Easily, IMO, the worst part of this camera is the incredibly common and ugly flare. So much for "Super" EBC coatings.

If you shoot wide open, the flare's contrast to the rest of the scene is at its lowest. If you stop down, the circles become even more visible and look far worse.
