I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about going with the 7-14... even the 9-18 has the purple problem on the OMD. It would be nice to see the two back to back, but I doubt anyone has them both on hand.

I have both, but haven't shot them side by side.   The Vario G 7-14 flares much easier, and the purple flare is much more distinct, richer, and intrusive.   Purple flare aside, here's a curious result with the 7-14. . . just out of view was a cross walk sign, not quite shielded by the hood on the lens.   One of the reasons for getting the 7-14 related to this sort of objective, for the wider FOV.   I didn't get such results with previous exposures at this location with the 9-18.   FWIW
