Re: MFT Lens Turbo II Flare

Below is a photo that demonstrates the veiling flare. Shot with Olympus E-M5 MkII, Nikon 105mm f/2.8 lens and Lens Turbo II, with a deeper lens hood added, and an old Hoya U-V filter. 1/160th sec., I think it was f/11 (f/8 actual with FR). The filter might have added to the flare. Shot on tripod as shown.

Downsized from originals to 1080h. The first image is the OOC JPEG. Next is my processed RAW. As you can see, I successfully removed the flare in PS using a Levels Adjustment Layer and moving the bottom slider up, then applying a mask and locally erasing it. Of course, it would be better not to have it in the first place, but it doesn't spoil the sharpness, contrast, or color quality if you're working from a Raw file.
