Yeah, I agree with Aacb, it's not the DA15 but it's got very good flare resistance anyway. These are hostile conditions, on a K-1 in full frame mode:

I don't think my pictures contribute anything new to this story, but this is certainly a lovely lens, even on full frame. I can't imagine ever parting with it.

New to me 70ltd. Who would have known a walk in the the woods would have come out this way. Loving the lens so far. Abstract with k5ii.

The 70 is a favourite of mine both on APS-C and FF, even though the corners are a tad weak at wider apertures (which is usually when you don't care about the corners anyway).
