    I've seen this probably twice in 20K exposures with my 5D II. When using
    a wider lens, a very small aperture, and the point source of light is
    surrounded by a very dark area you can see it. Normally shooting into
    the sun won't show it since the surrounding area is pretty bright.

    But isn't it nice to have one more "flaw" to obsess about? This reminds
    of the inherent flaw in Tri-X that seemed to occur when I badly
    underexposed it and overdeveloped in a high energy developer, like
    HC110. Surprisingly, the photos looked like shite.

    Proof positive that you've never owned any camera and have never taken any
    photos with bright lights in the FOV at any time.

    Nice to see that the "Mystic Orbs" crowd has now invaded camera reviews.
    Being taken seriously by people just as ignorant and inane as they are.
    They don't know about close-up, out-of-focus, flash-lit, airborne dust and
    they also have no concept of internal reflections that cause lens-flare.
    Next they'll be claiming a camera is seriously flawed and needs a firmware
    update if they can't flip the image around to see the face of the person
    that had their back to them during the shot. Being taken just as seriously
    by others equally moronic. You know, fools like yourself.

    You being to brainless to differentiate between internal lens
    reflections and a sensor problem?

    Equally fascinating. All the talk about it being normal and yet the
    author couldn't replicate it.. I am so tired of whore apologists for
    camera companies. I reminds me of the Canon focus problem all over
    again. Plus, the writer of the cheap blog is a HACK! Histrionics
    seems to be his forte, I hope he doesn't expect to be writing for any
    real publication any time soon.

    If it was a sensor problem then these mysterious "red dots" wouldn't occur
    in the very same plane/line and direction as all the other associated
    lens-flare in every sample shot. You freakishly ignorant and unobservant
    moron. Go back to doing what you do best, psychotically pretending that
    you've held a real camera once or twice or that you know even one thing
    about them. Oh wait, that's right, you're already doing that. It's all you
    can do.

    You have to learn to manage expectations, Rich. Is it your position that a
    sensor that doesn't have the ability to cancel out flare has a "problem">
