I thought the flare was interesting until I noticed the aperture blades in the shot also:

It doesn't take much to get a nice rainbow flare from the Canon 50mm f/0.95:







Cheers!

Flare is something I usually avoid ... though that may change Wink

However, some years ago, whilst touring in Scandinavia, my "go-to" camera whilst driving was my Olympus XA1, a fixed-focus 35mm film camera with a pleasantly capable 35mm f/4 D.Zuiko lens.

This shot was a surprise because, as it's a "viewfinder" camera, I had no idea the flare would be there until the prints came out of the darkroom Smile

Zuiko MC 50/1.4 flares easier than other 50/1.4s I've had tried. It's a beautiful kind of flare though.





Nikkor 20/4 is actually pretty decently flare resistant. I had to work for this one.





Navitar 75mm F1.3, doing it's Navitar thing.





Phillip Reeve advises to avoid non-MC Zuikos, but I'm not going to part with my 100/2.8 anytime soon.

The Schneider-Kreuznach Retina Curtagon 28/4 has a pretty flare.




In the Flare of the Soligor 28/2,8 (62mm Filter) you can put people:

Again Soligor 28/2,8, this time not cropped.

That's the weird Komura 28/3. 5 I got recently. The Steinheil 28/2.8 that arrived appears to be "interesting" to say the least. I'm figuring to go analog for a while. Less is more in a number of ways.

#3 is top notch IAZA Like 1 . Thanks for putting it up. It looks like he's steadying himself to jump through it.
