Well, I suppose it isn't a lens hood.

Pol-filter perhaps?

Yes, in one case. Which? And for what reason can a polarizer remove lens flare and/or its purpleness?

Hmmm. So at least one answer is DIY filters for the 7-14mm...

Yes or the WonderPana from Fotodiox.


However, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that a polarizer always helps as well as it did in this particular case.

Don't worry. I always prefer walking to conclusions rather than jumping. In this case, I'm most definitely awaiting for the full unveiling.
