When I was a child, I used to have a toy kaleidoscope! It was simply a paper tube with a simple plastic optic system and moving pieces of glass in it. When looking against the light, you could see lots of colorful flares changing when you moved the tube.

I could probably be called spiteful again, but the Canon’s results against bright light reminds me a lot of what I saw in my kaleidoscope: lots of interesting and colorful lights that change their position, color and saturation when you change the focal length. The effect is very appealing, but not necessarily in pictures.
