NIKON 105MM MACRO FLARE

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTO GEAR by KRISS on 01 december 2016

A few sunsets ago before last week’s rain I decided to test the Nikon 105mm f2.8 VRII macro against a setting sun and see what happened.
Compared to my other lenses I get the felling it really creates more of a flare that manifested as a red dot on the following photographs.
I have never noticed that problem before and tested the lens in flaring environments on numerous occasions (Kate shot many weddings solely with that lens).

So I guess it has to do with the angle of light coming through the lens.
Its nano coating is certainly very good and dispersing flare when coming from a certain angle above the lens but starts weakening when light is coming in straight.

This is something I absolutely didn’t notice as I was taking the shots by the way, meaning that I could have fucked up pretty bad if my subject had been a face and the flare in the eye ! Will certainly carry out more tests on that issue.
