Hi

could anybody share their feelings and impressions about what spherical lens series would be a good choice for using wanted flare as a narrative choice?

which lenses would be most prone to produce beautiful and organic flares according to your experience?

i've been thinking of Cooke S3 series but also wondering about Schneiders (though these might be a little too much), what would you guys say?

Thanks a lot

I used a set of Zeiss Standard speeds recently which flared very nicely. In general, the older the lens, the more they flare.
