    i have no clue really but suspect by mere design alone the tamron 90 macro might very well be near the top:cool:

    this lens tends to shine in even the harshest of conditions:biggrin:

    agree with nb , altough the image has some flare other lenses are more prone to flare in the same condition , that's one of the reason i prefer the 17-35 over the 17-55 for landscape

  5. In my collection its probebly the 17-35/2,8 Nikkor.

    worst ? Nikkor 50mm/1,8D without doubt :)

    nice portrait (without flare) 50 1.8?? , i guess more important than the glass prone of flare is the hood , there are lot of bad and good designed hood.
  7. Yes the 50mm/1,8D. A hood would most likely not help in this case since the sun would be hitting the front element anyway due to the angle i shot it at.

    Then on the other hand, the flare was intentional in this shot.

    Here is another flare shot but less centered.

    Nice shot btw!

    IME, the sigma 18-50 f/2.8 EX, the 24-120vr and the 80-400vr have some of the best flare handling characteristics of the lenses that I own. Here's a sample from the 18-50.
