Which lens has a flair for flare? Seems every manufacturer is coating them to hell and back trying to remove flare but I kinda like it, when I want it.

Not sure I have anything thats realy good, looking for a fast prime sometime soon hopefully that will do it...

So what lenses do you have with good / bad flare?

Heres some of mine, first two from this morning.

Sigma 70-200f2.8 ex HSM, rather like this:

Canon 50 f1.8 , again not too bad:

One from a while ago from the sigma 10-20, its OK adds to the picture but a little uncontrolled and you get a green blob all the time which isnt nice.

My favorite so far is the sigma 120-300f2.8, shame I had to hand it back!

LensBaby. The platic lens optic is particularly good at it.

I think flare works in some situations.

I never had really good flare, but I had one shot of a Carnival-type thingy which showed VERY colorful flare. Its funny because the lens has anti-flare coatings.
I'm away from the main computer, but I can upload it later. :)
