|I have the 7 element version and have had good experiences using it on the A7II, however I don't recall ever using it in circumstances where flair would be an issue.
The Buhle website addresses the issue as:
"The Hexanon / Hexanon AR 28 mm / F3.5 is not very sensitive to stray light. With its big and not recessed front element, the consequent use of a lens hood is recommended in most situations to avoid loss of contrast, however. A matching rectangular metal lens hood was part of the lens kit delivered by Konica at least for some time. For later, non-preset versions, it is the same lens hood as for the other 28 mm and the 24 mm lenses. This original lens hood is quite deep and shades very well. Of course third party lens hoods can be used as well, but the original lens hood is worth it, if you can get one."
Just an armadillo on the shoulder of the information superhighway.
