Leaving the house at 6:30 this morning, my fiancée got to see her first sunrise. This shot is unfiltered, and there has been no removal of any flare. The 18-270 performed superbly in this test, giving excellent contrast and clarity.
In fact, it almost made up for me draining the car battery overnight by leaving the interior lights on. Muppet.
