    Noticing this strange circle centered in these lens flares for the 1st time. Have not been able to duplicate it. See nothing out of the ordinary with the lens or sensor.

    Red Epic-X

    Used at Canon L 24-70 at 70mm with an extension tube.

    Is this anythign I should worry about?

    Is probably dust on an internal lens element. Might need to be pointing at a strong point-source of light to replicate it. Can be corrected in post, but such bokeh-corrupting particles are practically unavoidable when a lens is put to general use in the open air.
