It was quite interesting, and one of the more interesting things he wrote about was that the Fujifilm lens makers acknowledged you can’t build a lens that always eliminates flare, but you can try to make it look as nice as possible when it is unavoidable, and that’s indeed what they strive to do.

Beautiful? You can decided.
