I know I shouldn’t complain about flare when pointing the camera straight to the sun: I took the risk, and I lost...
It’s strange to see how fast the R1 was gone, despite very good reviews. I think it has something to do with Sony taking over Minolta: the Alpha SLR is a Minolta, really.
My only gripe is with the R1’s image noise at high sensibilities: it has a wonderful range from ISO160 to ISO3200, but from ISO800 onwards the image quality falls into the category of “special effects”... The f2.8 lens is very nice, though, and I still prefer the 24mm wide angle and a moderate tele over a 35mm and an extreme tele (for that, I have to borrow my daughter’s camera).

Flare or not, the sudden vanishing of the R1 here and to: This is a most beautiful capture, Kees! You got a view to "kill for" from your balcony, really - I need something similar for private accommodation soon :-) Thanks for sharing, very pretty!

Thanks, Werner. The place from where I took this picture is free, and you can have it ... but you wouldn’t like to be living on the street, would you?
For our balcony to yield such pictures, I would need a good tele lens... For this one I had to walk, if just a few minutes... :-)

I wanted that sun, and would have loved it to be as big as yours are...

No balcony view, alas! But you can have this view if you’ll walk Robbie in the morning!
You’ll also have the opportunity to discover that, while the camera has flare, its owner is entirely flairless...

Sherry, this is an intricate matter with many aspects and ramifications, involving such important questions as: “Has anybody seen us?” “Can a sensible person rightfully be bothered by it?” “Will it soon be washed away by the rain?” “Is our reputation as good citizens at stake?” “Is this the place where this nice man’s usually mowing the grass?” “Do I have a plastic bag in my pocket?” “Will people believe it when I pretend not to have noticed?”
I could go on for hours...
