    We don't have the full picture. The Sony lens could have been kept in warm and humid air before the shoot, allowing moisture to build up. Maybe the lens was handled differently before or during the...

      Normally, it's quite easy to use memory colours to set white balance manually in post. Skin colour and sky for instance. Just keep nudging the sliders until it looks right.

      Flowers tend to be more difficult because they come in all shades and hues. Therefore, memory is less reliable. A grey card like you mention is a simple and effective solution. A colour checker is even better and hardly any more work.

    Is that documented somewhere? Several manufacturers have such lenses and It's stated in the documentation. In any case a filter is always a plus if you're out and about.
