I have a strong preference for early rangefinder cameras and lenses. I just prefer the character they impose on the image.

Of course, you have to adjust your processes to account for the eccentricities those lenses introduce.

In the example below I was using both a new (to me) lens and film. The lens is a 1936 uncoated Elmar 3.535 and the film Lomography Color 800.

While I usually use a hood, I went out without one because I didn't have one to fit the lens. After this shot, I corrected that error.

Apologies if I'm way off the mark, but isn't that a nasty light leak, rather than lens flare?
