As long as you work near the maximum relative aperture the flares won’t be a big problem. The situation changes on significant stopping down – then the flares might appear inside the frame even if the source of bright light is outside it; still the fact that there is no big contrast decrease might be a bit comforting.

In this category the Sigma loses its duel with the Canon but it seems to be slightly better than the noticeably more expensive Nikkor.
