I do not get it. It seems virtually any source of light becomes a flare on this lens making it useless for night cityscapes. Anyone else experience this issue or I am just doing something wrong/got bad lens? Both images shot on tripod at f11-ish. I increased exposure slightly to make light leaks more visible.

Look around the blue building - light goes beyond building and in general image looks very dirty due to messed up lightning.

Nice photos! Lots of things happening in there

Thanks for posting.

I think I saw it mentioned somewhere in some review that flare was a problem with this lens. But I never thought it would be that entertaining!
