Reichman's tests are a great source of humor, but certainly not legal action. When I read his declaration that the 16-35L is more prone to flare than the 17-40L, using the images of the sun behind the power lines as proof, I almost fell off my chair. He doesn't seem to understand that the earth is rotating on its axis, and that the sun is blocked in the 17-40L image, but not completely blocked in the 16-35L image, resulting in the flare we see. He even tries to deflect criticism by stating that he hasn't moved the camera!
Well, given the inexorable rotation of the earth, and the impossibility of instantaneous lens changes, he of course would have to move the camera in order to maintain the same orientation of camera, power line tower, and sun between the two images.
So, OK Michael, the 16-35L is more prone to flare than the 17-40L. Sure, I believe you. ;-)
