If you have a 1.8 lens and shoot directly at a lamp, what do you expect? Of course you have flare. Those are the laws of physics. Help me understand why this is a topic of discussion.

How come that some lenses are more prone to flare than others, even when the source of the flare is not directly present in the frame?

Would you kindly explain the physics in the photo in Brent Allen Thale's post in this thread, since there is no obvious strong light source present in the scene?
