Sure buddy; checks in the mail. Sounds to me like you're just continuing the internet tradition of repeating 'truths'. Until you can show us all what "uncontrollable flare and ghosting" and this "over-exosed/ over ratio background would reduce contrast of what was exposed correctly" from your copy (which you don't say Again which version yes it matters) then it I refer to my original post: you need a good cleaning.
In fact, I'll be shooting today with this lens in the bright hot Hawaiian sunshine and I'll post some examples on my blog. I'll keep you posted.
