I was doing a night shoot a couple of days ago and noticed a weird halo around all the lights when using a Nikon 20mm/2.8. In the middle of the shoot, I switched over to my 28-105 and the halos disappeared. What could cause this problem?

Any possibility that there is haze on or in the lens? Usually shows up with bright lights in a dark setting.
That was my first thought too, but I've inspected the lens pretty carefully and can't find any evidence of haze/fungus on the optics. It's weird.

I'm going to run some more tests when I have time and see if it was a temporary thing. (I'm not too optimistic about that.)
