James, you can't block something you want in your shot.
Sun in the shot without the rainbow flare: 18mm FLARE Good
And here are a few shots to enjoy some of the pros of this gorgeous lens: 18mm DETAIL #1, 18mm DETAIL #2

I wish I knew the name of the poster to give him credit here.
Just curious... have you tried a net in front or behind the lens with a flair?
If flairs are as important as the image quality id pick another lens.
Try Hawk or Lomo Round Front Anamorphics - http://www.vimeo.com/9125933 - for great Lomo flairs in action.
I think Matt was putting it out there to see if anyone had any ideas as to
what in the lens design/optics would create that particular kind of flare.
He's quite familiar with French flags and/or grip flags for eliminating flare--that wasn't his question.
And yes, a 2K zip is a light (concave white interior with globes on the bottom--no lens, so it creates a bounced, softer light).
I think most of this is in the coating, possibly somewhat in the glass composition. I've shot quite a bit with the RPPs, as I own a full set with 18mm and 300mm, and haven't had any real issues. I don't think I have the rainbow flare like this in any of my footage. Although I have seen it. It's kinda unique, but I suppose it could be undesirable due to how intense it can be, based on these examples here.
Oh, missed those. I was blinded by the hair. Once I regained my sight I noticed a few towards the end with the setting sun.. :)
I assumed it had something to do with the coatings. What I don't understand is why it shows on the 18mm and not the others..?
