    Maybe, but in my experience condensation usually gives diffuse halos, not those sharp pointy rays.
    I think the 55 is actually pretty well behaved, considering the overexposure (unavoidable) of the lights.

    I'd probably throw the Summicron 28 in the dumpster along with that Nikkor...

    I bet that really hurts! :ouch:
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Oh dear, even my 50 dual range with umpteen rounded blades makes some nice stars when closed down all the way...better chuck it.

    Micro lenses are corrected for use at short distances. They give the best resolution when used for closeups. They can be used for general purpose photography but with less than optimal results.

    Well lenses are not necessarily optimised for night shots.
    If you don't like a particular lenses signature then you need to be using a different lens.
    You do need a lens hood and no filter
    Most thin lens triplets will have two plane air to glass surfaces so double Gauss types should be better in general.
