    The rumour is he'll have the "flares" in EPVII to get back to the 70's feel of ANH :p

    More like it was never a problem to begin with until some anal nitpickers, who apparently struggle with OCD, started harping on it.

    Peter Gibbons: What's lens flare?
    Joanna: Oh, it's uh...it's where you know like the...the suspenders and buttons are all sort of...We're actually required to wear um...fifteen pieces of lens flare. Quite stupid actually.
    Peter Gibbons: Do you get to pick 'em yourself?
    Joanna: Yeah. Yeah. We do. Although I didn't actually choose these. I, um, I just sorta grabbed fifteen buttons and just...I don't even know what they say! Y'know, I don't really care. I don't really like talking about my lens flare.
    Peter Gibbons: Okay.

    Lens Flares will be the new Force power in the ST..........

    (I'm not familiar enough with Abrams to get the whole lens flare thing, but I guess this fits?)

    Think "Force Push" but instead a lens flare emanates from the Force user's palm, blinding the opponent.

    There were a lot, but it didn't hinder my ability to enjoy it either. Abrams just picked a style he thought would work for Star Trek, and in my opinion it did, it worked very well.

    Here's a hint: basically look at any shot in the movie. If there's not a lens flare, you probably put in Wrath of Khan accidentally.

    Why did the lens flair cross the road?

    There's going to be so much lens flare during the opening crawl that there will have to be subtitles.

    I re-watched Mi:I III last night and mother of God, the lens flares. Then I watched Ghost Protocol (which Abrams was not director but still a big part of the creative aspect). Not surprisingly I preferred Brad Bird's direction.

    Here's the first 11 minutes of Star Trek 2009, unaltered. It's hard to count but, I'm guessing about 75-100..

    Well, it's not just lens flare jokes, but there's some shaky cam and Lost references it it too.
