Has anyone else seen this problem with their focal reducer?

I’ve searched for references to this problem with the LT2, and I can’t find any. This surprises me; the flare was very obvious the first time I took a back-lit photograph. I bought my LT2 quite recently, so I wonder if Zhongyi have changed the mechanical design of the lens barrel so that recent ones flare.

I’ve also not found any references to this problem with the MetaBones SpeedBooster™. This has larger optics than the LT2, so it should be less susceptible. I’d also not be surprised if the barrel was better designed to avoid reflections, given the higher quality of the design and manufacturing of the SpeedBooster. Perhaps Brian might like to comment on this.

Regards,

Alan
