I've seen two comments in here about specific lenses being affected by heat haze.

Since heat haze is a physical property of the atmosphere, I always thought that it was something which affected all lenses equally. I mean, sure, poorly resolving lenses will be affected by this issue, but they aren't prey to heat haze specifically and more that anything which reduces the IQ of the image will be more noticeable if the IQ wasn't great to start with.

Anyone have any links or anything I could read up on, or can provide additional information? I tried Googling but my first few search attempts were mostly met with, "this is what heat haze is and why it affects telephoto lenses."


When it comes to heat distortion, it actually can vary from lens to lens depending on the situation. If someone plans to shoot in the winter and bring a lens out of a warm car, the lens itself can create distortion because it's not acclimated to the temperature outside. A smaller lens of less mass will acclimate to the conditions outside quicker vs a big heavy lens. Shooting without a lens hood until everything equalizes also helps too because the warm lens hood traps warmer air inside it
