Is there something wrong with my 12-40?

    I've begun to notice some seriously bad flare and weird light balls appearing in some of my images taken with my 12-40 and EM10?

    This doesn't always happen but I am always nervous about shooting at night or around a lot of different light sources.

    What do you guys think?

    Just a couple of random thoughts:

    - are you using any filter?
    - is the lens clean (front and back)?
    - are you using a very small aperture in the second picture?
    - did you use the hood in the third?

    -For the first and second image, no filter was used.
    -I tend to clean my lens after every shoot but it may have had some finger prints in the second image.
    -In the Second image, for what ever reason I was actually using f/13
    -A polarizer was used for the third image, as well as a lens hood

    Thanks for stopping by and helping me out by the way!
