My experience with a 50 Nikkor was that I needed to stop down to f4 or so to reduce flare, and I also found a lenshood from a 105 Nikkor gave a big improvement by cutting out extraneous light - where flare wasn't a problem, though, it gave spectacular results, with sharpness easily equal to the kit zoom.

Thanks for the tip! I think one of my goals was to use it as wide open as possible, so I'll see if I can use a lens hood. The problem is... I've got a ton of these things lying around but none in the 49mm diameter I need. So much equipment lying around!
