K and D

Who's looking for trouble? Why should a $600.00 lens out-perform a $1200.00 lens in flare resistance?

because they are different designs - cost is no issue here - they're both in the same "segment", but different designs. It's like comparing apples and bananas...
Ghosts like that appear with all lens designs - more or less.
You may exchange it in a new one, but I doubt you'll see much difference - after all, canons CC isn't that bad.

Good news, I exchanged the lens today. I made some shots in the sun earlier today and again this evening, and the difference is significant, even when I "went looking for trouble" shooting with the sun smack on the corner of my viewfinder. This evening I went back to the same locations I shot the previous nights. I am now a happy camper. I can tell I'm really going to enjoy this new lens, finally!!!

By the way, I bought the lens at Samy's in Santa Ana, California. Ken the dealer I usually work with was great, no problems at all exchanging the lens, he was very helpful, great guy to do business with.

Wilfredo,

Glad you satisfied with the lens. Before I was worried about this flare problem too. I got my lens 4 days ago and "went looking for trouble" shooting directly to the sun or light the past 2 days. Can't find any problems. =)

Happy Shooting,

David Kowijaya

David:

It is amazing to me by the amount of posts on this thread how many people would have actually accepted a flawed lens. It is not the first time I buy something defective, thankfully I got it exchanged with no problems or hassles. I'm glad you are enjoying your lens, I really do like this new lens very much, it's a keeper.

Glad to hear the replacement is better! Mind sharing any similar samples using the new "reduced flare" lens?

Thanks,
Lincoln

The date code (service number) is the same: 1004. Both lenses have the same code, go figure.

Mine's expected on Wednesday.

It will be interesting to see its date code.

Enjoy your lens.

I'm very much looking forward to mine.
