Currently using the old MF 55 lens and it's actually pretty good - sharp across the frame at F16. But it's handling of flare when pointed at the sun leaves a lot to be desired. I'm using it for panoramas so don't need AF. Here's an example:

Can anyone tell me how the 55 AF or even the Phase 55 LS are with flare? I'm reluctant to get the LS because of weight and cost - it's 10x the price of the 55 AF!
Thanks in advance.
