It the new 24-70 f/2.8L II the most flare-resistant zoom ever?

I continue to be blown away by Canon's 24-70 f/2.8L II lens. Everyone knows how sharp this thing is, but the resistance to lens flare is superior to most primes and all my other zoom lenses! As an example, I was shooting a ballet Nutcracker setup for the Houston Chronicle last week--shooting directly into truly brilliant stage lights. Incredibly clean images with hardly any PP; just a hint of internal reflections from the lights.
