What is your experience with the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AI lens, as far as flaring is concerned? Last weekend I shot a roll of SFX, and looking at the negs I noticed an ugly flare in one of the frames. I understand that this could have been avoided by using a lens hood, but does this lens tend to flare easily? As far as I can remember, this is the first time I had flaring with this lens, and the Sun was not even in the frame - just outside of it when I composed the shot (on a F3, which has 100% viewfinder coverage).
What has been your experience?
