Hi. New lens and had some photos I'm really happy with. However on quite a few I have had some degree of flare taking the form of an orange circle (see below) - first picture only one I've had where quite that strong! Camera shop reckon lens is fine, flare to be expected on occasion and I need a hood. I keep reading comments that the lens is really flare resistant and therefore wonder if the issues I have are unusual. If this is normal I can certainly live with it but would really welcome advice on whether it is and other users' experiences.
Thanks.

Because the lens is so wide angle, a hood is of limited benefit.

As a further thought, do you use a protection or UV filter on the lens? If so, try removing it.

No filters used. Shop did suggest that might help but get feeling from posts on related subjects that cause as many problems as they solve. Thanks for replying.

To clarify, I was saying if there was a filter, removing it might help. But if you're not using one, that's moot.

The key word there is resistant. This is not the same as flare-proof.

For comparison, here are some examples from a different lens that is known to flare.

Hi. Thanks! Think that sets my mind at once and for all that my lens is fine.
