Just wanted to chime in with two images that shows what actually can happen if the circumstances are correct. Even though its not interference by adjoining optical surfaces, its a rather extreme example of flares due to internal reflection inside the lense.FireGryphon wrote:There are all sorts of weird effects that occur when light bounces back and forth between semi-reflective surfaces. Perhaps a pattern somewhere in the image (though not necessarily in focus) interacted with the optics to create the effect that only shows up in the very out of focus areas.
