I have a question for you though, did you shoot that first shot with the 12-50 or 12-40 2.8?

All of them are shot with the 12-40. Some with a polorrizer. I'm not sure which.

Hmmm. I have to say I'm a little disappointed with the way that lens renders the starburst effect on lights. The spines aren't very crisp at all. I was really looking forward to ordering that lens, but now I'm not sure. I really like to shoot long exposure night scenes and that effect is important to me. Unless, of course, it's the polarizer that caused that.

In my experience, zooms are never going to yield the starburst effect you get with a stopped down prime.  The best seem to be fast wide angle primes.
