Flare is the main issue for me, when i do run into it. Even if it is something as simple as an add-on hood extender, i think that is all that is needed for this otherwise stellar lens.

I sold the bloody thing because of its flare, ergonomics is awful too... Got the 14mm f2.8 instead.., much better with flare, ergonomics is miles ahead, MF and build Q from another world (the dumping of MF ring is better than an MF lens), and ...a unique UWA effect that no other WA shares... Great performance across the whole frame after f5.6 too... less sharp at borders and corners at F2.8 and f4... but who cares? ...A much better overall lens!

This is my second 14mm f2.8, I replaced the first one with the zoom... most stupid thing I ever did!! Now, my WA line is AI-s 16mm f2.8 f/e, 14mm f2.8D, 24mm f2.8 AI-S, 28mm f2.8 AI-s, 35mm f2.8 AI-s P/C and 17-35 f2.8....
